Ca’ Lustra's vineyards grow among gorgeous slopes of the Colli Euganei (Euganean Hills). This is a well-known area for its volcanic soils made up of clear siliceous rocks, mixed with limestone of varying age and origin. Each vineyard comprises different soils and microclimates.

Their journey started in the 1960’s, when Angelo Zanovello bought the house in Faedo as a countryside retreat. In 1977 Franco, fascinated by winemaking, turned an old room in the stables into a winery. His knowledge and contagious commitment grew fast (along with the business. Now the family farm of 42 hectares (25 of which are vineyards) is run by Franco with his children Marco and Linda. The Zavonello Selection showcases their deep knowledge of the region and their dedication to sustainable agriculture (they have been farming organically since 2007).  Their wines express the specific character of the terroir, and are made with spontaneous fermentation, no clarification and minimal sulfites.

The Merlot grapes come from a one-hectare vineyard surrounded by orchards and olive groves in the Faedo High Valley, where marl combines with rhyolitic rock, forming a lean, draining and deep soil.

Fermentation takes place in tanks with indigenous yeasts. It is macerated on the skins for about a week, then fermented in tonneaux for 6 months and rested in cement tanks for about 12 months. The result is a fresh, supple Merlot with tantalizing tannins and distinctive red fruit notes.
