Good ground for great wines
Born of fire some 280 million years ago, the Bolzano quartz porphyry was subjected to movements in the Earth’s crust and intermixed in the course of time with the dolomite and limestone of the overlying Mendola formation. Erosion created a talus cone of calcareous clay interspersed with granular white dolomite. Its loose texture, with a good water balance and aeration and deep rooting soil, produces sites with outstanding potential.
