IGP “Campedel” is a unique wine produced exclusively by the winery Gamba. It is the result of a long production process. In order to produce this wine are used the most precious grapes from an enchanting vineyard, called Campedel, located on the typical rolling hills of the Marano valley.
Corvina 40%, Corvinone 40%, Croatina 20%.
Location and features of the vineyard:
The vineyard is located on the Gnirega Hill, in the heart of the Valpolicella classica valley at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level. The soil is mainly calcareous and clayey with some tuff in the lower layers. Thanks to such features the vines can easily bear drought periods.
