The soil where the plots are located is medium to heavily eroded reddish-brown loamy-viscous soil. The soil texture is characterized by a clay content of 19-25%, with good water retention and aeration of the root mass. There are also traces of calcium carbonate, with active limestone at depths of 0-60 cm, below 1%. This creates optimal conditions for high-quality wines.
