Geological studies have shown that soils in the Fittà, Castellaro and Tremenalto vineyards have a common feature resulting from the nature of the parent material they consist of. They also highlight characteristics of high pedodiversity. Therefore, they teach us that it is impossible to talk about “volcanic soil” in general, given the huge variety of its expressions even within the same area.
Depending on its composition, the degree of penetrability and the available water capacity, each one creates a unique environment and establishes a different relationship with the vines themselves.
This shows how, as a consequence, soil characteristics can affect the composition of the resulting grapes and wine.
Is that all then? Is it just the soil that determines the unique nature of a wine?
No, it’s rather the place it belongs to, in its entirety, which the soil is a very important element of, but not the only one. A place is its peaks and valleys, its woods, trees and vineyards, a place is also its inhabitants, the people and animals, its climate, the sun, water and wind and all these things together that interact in a complex, unique and sometimes mysterious equation. Therein lives its “genius”, and it is precisely this, the essence of every single place, that is expressed in its wine.
