The Ca' del Laito bottling is sourced from a range of vineyards in the area of Montecchio di Negrar. The vineyards are Coste (planted in 2015), Senge (planted in 2000), Cain (planted in 2005), Coare Longhe e Giulia (planted from 1990-2000) and, starting with the 2020 vintage, from Trapola (planted from 1940 to 1990!).

Soil: Coste - Basaltic Clay Senge - Basaltic Clay Cain - Clay Coare Longhe e Giulia - Clay & Limestone Trapola - Clay with Volcanic Sediment.

Viticulture: Hand harvested from younger vines ranging from 5 to 30 years old.

Vinification: After harvest in mid October, the wine ferments in stainless steel. In February and March they pass the wine over the pressed grapes used to make their Amarone.

Aging: Aged for 23-24 months in third passage oak - 50% barriques and 50% 12-25 hectoliter botti grandi.

Notes: Ca’del Laito was a place-name for a vineyard that straddles the ridge above Quintarelli. Tommaso purchased the vineyard (and the little workhouse there) from Masi in ~2002.
