Mappale 77 is the result of a particular assemblage of Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Rhine Riesling. “Mappale” is the name given to individual parcels of land on maps by the municipality of Trissino, the boundaries of each parcel often follow natural features like streams and hedges, grapes are taken from the vines on 77 Mappale to create this wine. They allow each of the three varieties to ferment separately and they pay great attention to the blending process to best represent each variety and this amazing terroir.

The vineyard has always been left to its original habitat surrounded by woods and fields. They grow a few of the local vine varieties such as Durella, Garganega and the more known Cabernet Frank, Pinot Nero, and Riesling Renano. All of the vines are treated following a severe protocol called “Regola della Valle d’Agno” which goes back to the ancient native agriculture principles. Vinification follows the same rule: the less intervention the better. From the grapevine to the bottle they want our wine to express the typicality of the terroir; they want to maintain the richness of the ground in our product and to show the true origin of the wine.
