info Collaltosite ;
Ponte Rosso lies not far from the Castle of San Salvatore, with soils that are quite clay-rich.In fact, in the past, the reddish clay here was quarried to make the roof tiles and bricks that went to build the houses for the village of the Counts of Collalto. Bricks made from the intensely-red clay were so distinctive that the name of the bridge made from them is Ponte Rosso, the red bridge.The glera grapes grown in this soil are high in minerals, the perfect fruit for producing a Nature-style Brut, with its firm structure, a wine as minerally and essentialist as our Ponte Rosso.
