SOIL WITH A DESTINY

Terrains destined for wine and a millennia-old tradition of wine-making, those of the Moletto winery in Motta di Livenza and Belfiore di Pramaggiore. Land that first, thanks to the Paleovenetians (1200 BC), then the arrival of the Romans and, over the centuries the Republic of Venice, saw the growth and spread of the vineyards that represent the heritage and pride of these areas.

DOC AND DOCG AREAS

The Moletto holdings are located within the provinces of Treviso and Venice, respectively in the Treviso Prosecco DOC, Piave DOC, Lison-Pramaggiore DOC and Venezia DOC production areas, and those of Piave Malanotte DOCG and Lison DOCG.

‚ÄúPIAVE DOC‚ÄĚ

Stretching along a vast plain, this is one of the largest DOC areas in the north of Italy. The Piave River runs through its entire length, between the provinces of Treviso and Venice. The wine-making tradition here goes back millennia and vine cultivation was first rationalized in the 1900s, also thanks to the contribution of experts from the Scuola Enologica (Wine Academy) in Conegliano, the first to be founded in Italy in 1876. This area, which encompasses a variety of types of soil and micro-climates, has a number of deep water springs that irrigate the soil and contribute to vineyard health. It is an area especially suited to vine cultivation.

‚ÄúPIAVE MALANOTTE DOCG‚ÄĚ

The area involved is the same as the Piave DOC, which extends from the northeastern border between the province of Treviso and the Friuli region to the mouth of the Piave River at Cortellazzo, and from the hills of Conegliano and Montello to the outskirts of the city of Venice.
Protagonist is a wine designated as “Malanotte del Piave”, or “Piave Malanotte”, an especially fine wine deriving from the native Raboso vine.
The “Piave Malanotte” or “Malanotte del Piave” controlled and guaranteed designation of origin is reserved for wines which meet the requisites set as production standards which were issued by the Italian Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Forests on December 22, 2010 and published in the Gazzetta Ufficiale della Repubblica Italiana on January 7, 2011.
A “Piave Malanotte” or “Malanotte del Piave” controlled and guaranteed designation of origin wine must have been made in a winery from grapes grown in vineyards, and with the following ampelographic composition: at least 70% Raboso Piave and 30% Raboso Veronese. The Raboso Veronese may be replaced to a maximum of 5% by other varieties of red grapes, together with or separately from those suitable for cultivation in the provinces of Treviso and Venice.
The obligation of including the withering of part of the harvested grapes (30% maximum) is the key difference between Malanotte del Piave DOCG and the traditional Raboso del Piave DOC.

‚ÄúLISON DOCG‚ÄĚ

This refers to the wine basically obtained from the Tai varietal in the Lison-Pramaggiore area. It is found in the area around Portogruaro on the border with Veneto and the neighboring Friuli region.
It should be noted that "Tai" is the name resulting from an extended dispute, culminating in the decision of the European Court in May 2005 which stated that Hungary is the only country with the right to utilize the name Tocai.
The grapes grown in the Lison DOCG area result in a wine that is historic to the Veneto region. It is in the oldest, dedicated zone of production that includes the following areas: Lison, Pradipozzo and Summaga in the town of Portogruaro; Belfiore, Blessaglia and Salvarolo in the town of Pramaggiore; Carline and Loncon in the town of Annone Veneto and part of the territory of the towns of Cinto Caomaggiore and San Stino di Livenza.
