Massifitti

It is a clear expression of trebbiano di soave: an historical grape variety that has almost been forgotten, is often misunderstood and confused. Massifitti is the result of a long and adventurous journey that we embarked on at the origins of this ancient variety in order to rediscover its character and authentic nature. This wine, born and bred on fittà basalt, is a tribute to our land and its history of which we are the guardians.

VINEYARD

It covers an area of about 2 hectares, facing south at an altitude of 300 meters.
The name Massifitti describes the composition of the volcanic soil of this area which is particularly rich in compact basaltic rocks of large dimensions.
The vineyard was planted in 2006 using clones of old Trebbiano di Soave vines which were selected in collaboration with the laboratories of the Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Milan and Professor Attilio Scienza as part of our recovery project of this ancient variety.
Over the years we have increased the area dedicated to Trebbiano di Soave by creating new vineyards in different parts of the hills for a total of about 6 hectares.
