Azienda agricola Dalzocchio

We have the luck to live and work in a house that’s both a home and a winery, overlooking the town of Rovereto from the area called Bosco della Città. We’re surrounded by five acres of vineyard dedicated to Pinot Nero, with another five acres of high forest.

We’re very fond of our Pinot Nero vines, so decided to produce just this single type of wine; convinced too that Pinot Nero perfectly expresses the local territory and our own sensitivity as wine-growers.

With this aim, we guide our wine to its birth; with vineyard management and vinification as natural as possible, so simple as to be both ancient and modern together.

Our vineyard practices have always been in harmony with nature and have been certified as organic since 2001. To help the vines maintain balanced growth and best express the characteristics of the area and of the vintage, we apply various agronomic techniques, according to needs: green manure, manual soil treatment, infusions and preparations for both vines and soil. We are also careful to help develop and maintain the biodiversity in the area, as to both flora and fauna.

To ensure equilibrium for the vines and the quality of our wine, production does not exceed forty hectolitres per hectare.

Vinification is in open oak vats, with spontaneous fermentation, respecting tradition. The grape bunches are partly de-stemmed and the only other operation is punching the cap. After fermentation the wine is aged in oak barrels for 18 months, in our cellars dating from the end of the eighteenth century.
