Massifitti

This is the latest arrival. Our little prince and the worthy heir of the illustrious Trebbiano di Soave, an ancient grape variety that has almost been forgotten, is often misunderstood and confused. Massi Fitti is the result of a long and adventurous journey that we embarked on at the origins of Trebbiano di Soave in order to rediscover its character and authentic nature. This wine is pure and authentic, one hundred per cent Trebbiano di Soave, born and bred on Fittà basalt. It is a tribute to our land and its history, of which we are the guardians.

Fittà Cru

Total hectares: 155
Hectares of vineyards: 70
Position:  summit – slope
Exposure:  south, east and west
Altitude: 64-312 m

Fittà is a village in the municipality of Soave at 300 metres above sea level, in the heart of the Classica area. Thanks to the altitude, Fittà has a wide diurnal temperature range in summer and constant ventilation. The hills in this area are made up of soil of clear volcanic origin, with basalt ground layers and a clay-silt texture; the slopes of the hills range between 10 to 30%. 

In the Cru of Fittà there are some of our vineyards whose grapes are used to make Soave Classico and also one of our oldest vineyards, Le Rive, with a southern exposure and planted entirely with Garganega, with the traditional pergola veronese training system. Also in the Fittà area there are the new Guyot-trained Trebbiano di Soave vineyards whose grapes are used to produce Massi Fitti.

Carbonare Cru

Total hectares: 35
Hectares of vineyards: 28
Exposure: east and northeast
Altitude: 120-280 m

The name of this cru refers to the distinctive colour of the soil: “as black as coal.” In fact, the soil is dark and deep with a clayey soil texture, not calcareous, strongly volcanic and made up of altered and compact basaltic rocks. The area is frequently ventilated and generally cool. Here there are some of the oldest vineyards in the whole of the Classica area. In Carbonare, the slopes of the hills range between 10 and 30%. 

The Monte Carbonare vineyard is in the highest part of this area and cultivated with sixty-year-old Garganega vines.

Castellaro Cru

Total hectares: 35
Hectares of vineyards: 30
Position: summit-slope
Exposure: south, east and west
Altitude: 140-260 m

Castellaro is the name of a volcanic cone situated in the north of the Classica area. Here basaltic stones abound and the soil texture is moderately fine. The high altitude and the exposure guarantee constant ventilation and long hours of sunlight. The slopes range between 15 and 40%.

The best Garganega grapes for making our Recioto di Soave come from this vineyard on the summit of the mountain.

Tremenalto Cru

Total hectares: 87
Hectares of vineyards: 75
Position: summit – slope
Exposure: east and north
Altitude: 57-230 m

This northernmost part of the Classica area is distinctive for its dark and deep soil of volcanic origin. The heaven-sent, cool northern winds run through Tremenalto and are important for the wellbeing of the vines during summer and the hottest years. The slopes of these hills are generally steep (20-35%). 

The grapes for making Soave Classico are grown in the steep vineyards in this area.
