TERRITORY


Cantine Delibori boasts some 220 hectare of vineyards, which are either owned or managed by the company. The production areas go from the area near Lake Garda to the main doc areas in the province of Verona.

BARDOLINO

The soil of the zone near Lake Garda is almost entirely of morainic (and partly fluvioglacial) origin. It is stony and calcareous, smoothed though by the Adige Valley glacier. 
The presence of Lake Garda is a determining factor in creating positive characteristics in the grapes and wines, because it makes the climate more agreeable, with mild winters and temperate summers. This happy combination of climate and soil yields wines with markedly fruity sensations.

CUSTOZA

The wine-producing zones of Custoza and Lugana share the fact that they both belong to the area of Lake Garda. The production zone for Custoza lies at the southern end of the lake, more precisely in the communes of Sommacampagna (and the village of Custoza within it), Villafranca ,Valeggio sul Mincio, Peschiera, Lazise, Castelnuovo, Pastrengo, Bussolengo and Sona.

LUGANA

The vineyards used for Delibori Lugana are in the communes of Peschiera del Garda, Desenzano del Garda and Sirmione, along the southern shore of Lake Garda, in an area occupied in ancient times by the Lugana forest and characterized by a significant presence of clayey soils (white and black clays).

VALPOLICELLA

The Valpolicella zone includes much of the amphitheatre of hills to the north of Verona and is characterized by a generally mild climate with regular rainfall, as well as by very diverse soils that determine the personalities of the wines they yield, giving rise to a large number of different styles.
This is the area that produces some of Italyís most noteworthy D.O.C. red wines: Valpolicella, Ripasso and the extremely famous Amarone.
Delibori's wines are made from grapes grown exclusively in the five historic communes of the Valpolicella Classico zone (Fumane, Marano, Negrar, San Pietro Incariano and Sant'Ambrogio di Valpolicella).

SOAVE

In the Soave zone, in the gentle hills to the east of Verona, lie the vineyards that produce the wine of the same name. The terrain is a mixture of clay and sand, and is often rich in potassium and phosphorus. On the whole, the weather is mild and temperate, with not particularly rigid winters and hot summers. The grapes in this zone - especially Garganega - derive great elegance and rich perfumes from this particular combination of climate and soil.
