Only grapes of the finest quality
produce great wines

Careful management of the vineyard that respects the land

We firmly believe that the best fruits can only be obtained by respecting the environment.
This is why we want to keep human intervention to a minimum and uphold the natural
balances that already exist.
Every action is performed in accordance with tradition, to achieve continuity between past and
present. The wisdom and experience of the people who understand the land have always
inspired and guided our approach.

Pruning

An age-old activity, a long and meticulous job
performed in the vineyard at the end of winter,
before vegetative growth resumes.

Experience is fundamental to understand and
support the behaviour of each vine, to give the
branches the best shape and to leave the shoots
that will produce the right vegetation.

Performed entirely by hand, pruning is
fundamental in determining the quality of the grapes
because it influences the vines’ productive capability
and the ripening of the fruit.
We use the Guyout pruning system.

Sustainable management of nature

We do not practice chemical weed control in our vineyards.
For years our approach has been geared to total
respect for the environment. In our philosophy,
human intervention must be limited to assisting
the generative power of nature, where every
element has an important role to play
.

Grass has a specific function: the roots penetrate
the soil, keeping it soft and oxygenated. Moreover, a
grass cover prevents the soil from being washed
away by rainwater.

To enhance oxygenation, every year we turn over
the earth in alternate rows, so that we always have
easy access to the vines.

Selection of the grapes

Each vine, depending on its vigour, must be able to
concentrate all its vital energy on the fruit so that it
ripens fully: to ensure this, several inspections are
made in the vineyards
to examine every plant
and thin out the clusters. Each vine must have a
suitable load of grapes, depending on its location,
so that all the bunches can ripen fully.
During the phenological stage when the grapes
begin to change colour, an additional selection is
made to remove the weaker clusters.

Thinning out and selection are jobs performed by
experts who know how to assess the state of a
vine and its fruit at a glance. This skilled work
ensures that only the healthiest and most vigorous
bunches of grapes are harvested.
A quality wine begins life in the vineyard.

Grape harvest

The harvest takes place between mid-September and the end
of October, depending on the degree of ripening of the grapes
and the atmospheric conditions.
The grape harvest is a ritual, a celebration that embodies
all the hard work performed over the course of the
season
.
The right moment is chosen based on analyses, atmospheric
conditions and, above all, the sensory assessment
performed in the vineyard
: at this stage too, the old farming
experience and wisdom are fundamental.
Once the harvest begins, it moves ahead as
quickly as possible to avoid the risk of bad weather.

Our harvest is conducted exclusively by hand.
The bunches of grapes are placed in boxes up to a weight of
about 20 kg, an amount that ensures the grapes are not
crushed.
The winery is located just a few yards from the vineyards:
minutes after being picked, the grapes will reach the
conveyor belt to be transported to the vinification rooms.
