History and territory
The “Montello and Colli Asolani” DOC area expands in the north west of the city of Treviso, in the first piedmont hilly zone. This area is represented by a very long zone at the foot of the hill and by a very long hilly zone facing east-west direction, joined by a plain area and by the Mercato Vecchio hills of Montebelluna and of Caerano San Marco. The hydrography is characterised in the north by the Piave river and in the southern part by the Canale del Bosco, which flows at the foot of Montello.
The surface substratum of the lands located in the area of Montello mainly consists of ferritised clay of a dark reddish brown colour.
The attention to wine quality problems keeps pace with the enhancement of the characteristics related to the old and tested wine traditions of the Montello area, which has always been dedicated to wine-growing, thanks to the special structure of the soil and to a lucky climatic exposure: two essential elements that created excellent hydrogeological conditions for growing great vineyards of Cabernet, Merlot and Prosecco, which form the slopes and plains of this area.
There is a small wine farm here that has been considered the best interpreter of Cabernet in North East of Italy for over twenty years.
The story of Serafini & Vidotto at Nervesa della Battaglia, in the heart of Gioiosa Marca Trevigiana, is a story of passion and respect. Passion for the land and for the wine made by two friends, skilful vine-dressers, experimenters, pioneers.
Respect for the territory, for traditions and for limits that do not allow to obtain quantity in spite of quality, big numbers by sacrificing excellence.
This is a story of a love that looks ahead, with a cellar in the forefront, currently an example of functional architecture in harmony with the landscape, the seasons and the fair work of man.
It is not by accident that Serafini & Vidotto has produced Rosso dell’Abazia, a wine that marked the wine-making history of Italy.
