The soil

The volcanic layers of these areas are of different colours going from the darker basalts in various shades of dark grey and black, to copper-coloured and ochre with patches of clay.

The composition of the soil is a fundamental characteristic and its properties can give the wines a distinctive aspect.

Wine is the result of many elements: the sun, the soil, the climate and the hands of the men who make it.
