The Dracone is produced by hand-picking and carefully selecting grapes from Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot organic certification in September.

The grapes come exclusively from the vineyards of the estate and are vinified individually.

Subsequently it is aged for at least 18 months for one part in steel tanks, for another part, about 25% in 500 lt oak barrels. second and third pass.

Characteristics Land and Vineyard

The Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot vineyards were planted from 2003 until 2006 on medium-textured soils predominantly clayey with sand and silt.

The grapes come from the Farnè, Poggio and Quercia farm in the hills of San Pietro di Ozzano Emilia in the province of Bologna, in the Doc Colli d ’Imola area at an altitude that varies between 80 and 170 m.s.l.m.

The orientation of the rows varies according to the plots with a north – south prevalence.

The favorable microclimate, characterized by a high temperature range day-night even in summer, allows us to obtain high quality grapes and full-bodied wines characterized by high acidity and therefore freshness.
