Summary: Above Verona, to the south east on the way to Soave, lies the DOC appellation of Arcole. The region is within the influence of Lake Garda to the west, which sends cooling evening breezes down the valley, combining with cooler nights to retain natural acidity. The silty and sandy soils result in low yields and a mineral character.
Winemaking: Hand harvested in the early morning to retain natural acidity. Primarily whole bunched pressed, aiming to limit skin contact and preserve elegance. Fermented in stainless steel with temperature control before maturation on lees to build texture and complexity.
2017 Vintage: 2017 will long be remembered as one of the most difficult vintages ever.The season got off to an early start due to unseasonable heat, only to be followed by a prolonged cold spell after budburst had occurred, leading to crop reduction. The days became very hot predictably putting the vines into heat stress. Because water reserves were good, 2017 is a vintage marked more by heat than drought. The white wines are characterized by ripe, mellow flavours, with lower-than-usual acidities.
