Winery Info

The estate, in the Valpolicella area, is named after the ancient watchtower of the Castle of Montorio. Terracing where the farmers used to grow olives, grain and vines can still be seen. The Piona family recently purchased this land and planted vineyards with the indigenous varietals of Valpolicella. The soil here is the typical red soil of the area mixed with white chalk. This type of soil combined with the altitude gives great elegance to the wines and makes them suitable for a long ageing. As in the other two estates, natural practices are followed in the vineyards, the grape yield is kept low and only the best clusters are vinified. Modern technology is used in the cellar bearing tradition in mind.
