La Rocca is situated on the slopes of Monte Rocchetta, below the adjacent medieval castle which dominates the town of Soave. The vineyard benefits from a special microclimate which in turn produces a wine with great personality, a distinctive perfume and unique characteristics. Innovative since it’s first release in 1978, it has made its mark in the area and is become a definitive symbol of quality and tradition.

The harvest begins in mid-September with the Trebbiano di Soave and then the selection of the grapes for the Recioto di Soave and for the Amarone takes place. At the end of September the harvest of the Garganega grape and the Valpolicella grapes begins. From October the nights are cold, the temperature range is important and the ripening and quality of the fruit improve. The grapes from the most suitable vineyards are harvested later. The 2021 vintage is of excellent quality, with a 25% less harvest than in 2020. The fundamental characteristic of this 2021 was the regularity of the climatic trend and an excellent balance of yield and grape quality. 2021 has all the requisites to become an excellent vintage.

Brilliant and intense yellow with golden hints. Characterful wine, reminiscent of exotic fruit and nuts on the nose. Soft and persistent on the palate, with hints of spice, lenght and elegance. Makes an excellent partner to complex dishes, even with strong flavours particularly risottos such as porcini, or celery, squash and almond, salt cod and other fish including salmon, scallops and crab.
