Azienda Agricola Novaia

In the Marano Valley, a place particularly suited to the cultivation of vines, the Vaona family from the 1800s to today cultivates their lands and hands down the ancient tradition of producing fine Classic wines: today Valpolicella, Ripasso, Recioto and Amarone.

The Marano Valley, in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica, has geo-morphological, pedological, water and climatic characteristics such as to make it an ideal place for the cultivation of the vine and for the subsequent drying of the grapes. The mild and temperate climate, a strong temperature range between day and night, make the area an interesting ecological niche, capable of leading to wines rich in aromas, savory, minerals, with great structure, quality and longevity.
Tenuta Novaia occupies a single area, of which 10 hectares are cultivated, 7 with vineyards and 3 with olive groves. The vineyards are hilly, at an altitude between 250 and 400 meters above sea level, with a prevailing south / south-east exposure; the soils are marly-calcareous, interspersed with basaltic and tuffaceous layers, with low fertility, low fertility, suitable for the breeding of important red grape varieties: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and the ancient native varieties of Oseleta, of the Turchetta and Molinara.
