Within the municipality of Monteforte d’Alpone, this geographic unit represents the northern border of the town limit. In fact, the toponym most likely means “end – high” before crossing into the next town of Montecchia di Crosara.
The volcanic soils here are deep and fertile. The colors are dark brown or a deep red, but calcare- ous and barely alkaline.
The entire zone is characterized by steep slopes (20%-35 %) facing north to northwest. The wines are extremely fresh and drinkable. In particularly warm years, the area benefits from cooler summer tem- peratures thanks to northern air currents that pass through the Alpone valley and run along this side of the hillside.
