“La Rocca”, in Italian, means “the fortress”: this vineyard takes its name form the medieval fortress that dominates the town of Soave. In fact, the (single) vineyard is located on the Monte Rocchetta hill, close to the ancient castle itself. Terrain is volcanic, and Monte Rocchetta is the only hill in the Soave Classico area to have a calcareous structure.
Microclimate is very special, conducive to unique flavors and bouquet. Grapes are wholly Garganega and picked very late, often around the end of October.

After brief maceration on the skins, La Rocca is racked into 500-liter oak barrels (tonneaux), where it sojourns for several months, previous to further ageing in 20-hl. barrels, for a total of about 1 year, followed by 6 months’ bottle age.
The result is extremely complex, with very intense aromas and character. The first vintage was 1978.
