VINEYARD Monte Sant’Urbano estate, in the municipality of Fumane. It extends over a
surface area of 19 hectares. Situated on a hill at an altitude of 280 - 350
meters above sea level, the Monte Sant’Urbano vineyard enjoys an
excellent exposure to the sun. The calcareous, clayey terrain, of volcanic
origin, favors retention of moisture, preventing excessive dryness.

known as “marogne”. The vines have an average age of 25 years.
