The path


From the Roman column we enter to “Borgo Malanotte” and follow the main avenue of the village, observing the villa, the farmhouses, the courtyards, the tavern and the old horse rest station, then along “Duca d’Aosta” street which will lead us to location of “Tezze di Piave” where the British War Cemetery stands, which houses the remains of 355 British soldiers who died in the First World War. Leaving the square, follow “Borgo Tonini” Street admire a specimen of “Sophora Japonica Pendula”, a monumental tree in Italy, before concluding the tour again in “Borgo Malanotte”. A variant towards the southern countryside will allow us to observe a centuries old “Bellussera” vineyard.


The locality of “Vazzola” and its hamlets have a strong winemaking tradition, so much so that they have given rise to a specific denomination, “Piave Malanotte DOCG”. It is a very characteristic wine that fits into the niche of connoisseurs on the market. It is obtained from “Raboso Piave” and to a lesser extent from “Raboso Veronese”, robust vines, capable of giving a very deep ruby colour. With a great structure and high acidity, it is characterized by the particular notes of tannin that make it particularly rustic, “angry” as indeed its name is. A part of the grapes is subjected to drying and the disciplinary requires aging for thirty-six months of which at least twelve in barrels and four in bottles. With the passage of time, the colour turns towards a garnet red hue with intense aromas, ideal for important red meats, game dishes and cheeses such as the denomination “Ubriaco del Piave” which arises from a particular maturation on the fermentation skins of this wine.
