Wine made from grapes grown without synthetic pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides in the vineyard.


Tasting Notes

The Viviani family has 10 ha of vines in Mazzano in the historic Valpolicella Classico zone. The vineyards are planted at 400 meters which enables ideal conditions for the cultivation of vines - well-ventilated with low humidity. After harvest, the grapes are allowed to wither and concentrate in small baskets in a fruttai - a small room that enables this process. Fermentation is done weeks afterwards with ambient yeasts. After, the wine settles in varying sizes of old oak casks.
