The clay soils naturally capture the vigor and a pleasing vegetative-productive balance, so much so that normally these soils produce wines that don’t need many agronomic interventions. Instead, these interventions may become important with the fresher and more fertile medium-mix soils. The presence of limestone tends to inspire floral sensations or fresh fruitiness in wines, unlike wines obtained on decarbonated soils. The norther exposures and higher altitudes tend to produce fresher and more fragrant wines.
