An historic vineyard with a centuries old reputation for making fine wines. Located in the Valpolicella region in the eponymous suburb of the district of Negrar at an altitude of 350-415 m s.l.. Facing west with vineyard rows planted north-east to south-east; partly following the contours of the land despite sharp drops in level; shored up by dry stone walls. The land is dark in hue and composed of marly limestone and basaltic toar from the Eocene era. The soil is deep, loose and rich in schist and natural humus. The classic Amarone grapes, Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, are grown here to make Mazzano, a majestically austere and elegant wine with great personality.
