The estate is entirely cultivated and certified in accordance with the organic conduction method.
The plots of land which compose this estate lay in the localities of: Monte Zovo, Spiazzi and Bettinelle. To better understand, all of them can be localized in the Garda Lake inland area, where we choosed the best position in terms of sun exposure and terroir.
Monte Zovo lays all around the winery of Caprino, inside the magnificent area of the morenic amphitheatre of Rivoli Veronese. Spiazzi , instead, is located at high altitude, in the prealps area on the slopes of Monte Baldo. The experimental vineyards of Bettinelle is located in the plain of Rivoli. they are dedicated to research on resisten varietals.
The differt location and sun exposure of the three vineyards, makes sure that different and somehow unique microclimatic conditions occur.
Monte Zovo and Bettinelle are characterized by constant breezes blowing from the Adige Valley, the one which come down from Trentino Alto Adige. The valley acts as a gully for Alps’ winds. Spiazzi, instead, is characterized by a great termic excursion between day and night. In both cases temperature, tendentially fresh, are mitigates by the warm influence of the Garda Lake, that acts as a termal regulator.
Even from the morphological point of view, the different vineyards location makes sure that a great variability occurs between each others.
The soils of Monte Zovo and Bettinelle are morenic. They are characterized by calcareus cobblestones, which show a typical round shape, as they have a sedimentary origin and were bringed here by the melting of the glacier Atesino, better know as it gived origin to the Lake Garda. In Spiazzi the soils are mainly calcareous and rocky, with a clay loam texture.
The three different plots of the Caprino Estate are spread at very different altitudes between one to each others.
Monte Zovo is located on the northern part of the morain ridge that acts as the perimeter of the morenic amphitheatre of Rivoli Veronese. Here we are 450 meters above sea level. Bettinelle, instead, lays at 350 meters above sea level. Spiazzi vineyards are the highest in the area of Verona and are located at an avarage altitude of 850 meters asl, considered high altitude.
The estate is entirely cultivated and certified in accordance with the organic conduction method. In addiction, in the entire estate we have set up innovative criteria of precision viticulture and harvest techniques.
