About ten hectares, the Prepotto vineyard is, together with Zuc di Volpe, one of the great ‘crus’ of Volpe Pasini. Found in the hills of Prepotto, a natural calling for fine red wines, this vineyard is a single cru for Merlot. Its splendid graded shape, recalls the Aztec pyramids.
An oven during the day and very cold at night, this confers on the Merlot grapes a refined Nordic elegance combined with an intriguing Mediterranean complexity.
