“Il Nirò” was born from selected Pinot Noir, fully ripe grapes, handpicked in our vineyards in Montalto Pavese where this noble vine best expresses itself thanks to the excellent exposure, an important diurnal temperature range and the optimal soil characteristics.
This extra virgin olive oil comes from olives grown near Malcesine on Lake Garda where climate, type of olive, terrain and the wisdom of traditions give us superb and highly appreciated olive oil.
A superb extra-virgin olive oil, a pure nectar, produced using just 1% of the total production of the Olive-Growers’ Consortium in Malcesine. This superlative olive oil is made using olives that are picked from centuries-old olive trees growing in the full sun on hilly terraces, and pressed on the very first day of milling.
After an old terraced vineyard had been recalimed in 1991, and the soil renewed, with the aid of technological innovations, the hillside slope was densely planted with low vines. “Collina Zinzèle” was thus created with the vines growing on the steepest side of the slope in order to achieve a limited yield of superior grapes from every vine.
The terraces of Reviano are illuminated by the first rays of sun of the Lagarina Valley and look at the Finonchio and Pasubio mountains to the east from a privileged position: the valley lying at their feet with the bell towers and the towers of Isera and Sacco in the foreground, Rovereto in the background and Castel Corno towering above.
Late period grape picking, at the end of October with very limited production and presence of botrytis and berries gently dried. Then further raisining in crates . follows in a dry and airy environment which is . constantly controlled bunch by bunch manually and carefully until February with a final reduction of 70% in weight/grapes.
