The Agno valley is situated between the cities of Verona and Vicenza and stretches to the eastern sub-regions of Soave and Valpolicella. The viticulture zone is mostly on a north-south axis in the hills along the Agno River. The two banks of the river have relatively different geological properties which directly influence the characteristics of the wines. On one side, the soil is rich in volcanic deposits, remnants of the Monte Faldo, and on the other, the soil contains calcareous marine deposits dating back several millennia. The area is protected to the north by the Piccole Dolomiti (Little Dolomites) mountains.
