The estate’s vineyards are predominantly planted to the ancient local varieties Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara and the very rare Negrara. Although all play their part in the blend that is Valpolicella, the first three undoubtedly put their biggest stamp on the wines. There are also some rows of international varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah, which are complemented by Sangiovese and Croatina, which are strictly speaking not local.
However, to keep the Valpolicella, Recioto and Amarone as true an expression of the terroir, these varieties are vinified and bottled separately to create a wine called QB. Ironically enough this wine is often mistaken as through and through local, proving that, even in this case, the terroir has the upperhand over the grape varieties.
