The vineyards are about 150 metres above sea level, with eastern and south-eastern exposure, and are grown on the naturally hilly slopes of Castelrotto. Our land is rich in a variety of soils of different origin and composition. Limestone and the presence of deep-water sources have a marked influence on the structure and aromatic profile of our wines.
We use a mixed system to train our vines: pergola - with a planting density of 3,300 plants/hectare - and vertical espalier - with 10,000 vines/hectare. Lastly, the age of the vines ranges from 20 to over 100 years.
We mainly grow native varieties from Valpolicella: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, and Molinara, and we also grow a few old Veronese grape varieties that we add to create the precious and rich complexity that is such a distinctive characteristic of our wines and the elegant hallmark style of Villa Bellini.
