As surely as in wine there is truth,
I’ll tell you everything, no secrets
– William Shakespeare

Much has been made to set both a qualitative breakthrough as regards the management of the vineyards as the wine-making techniques, combining the past with the latest knowledge in the field of wine. Increasing attention has been given to the environment and health of the consumer; that’s becasue the company has joined the P.S.R mis 214 – according to the Italian laws – to have a lower environmental impact.
Fertilization and the use of pesticides are reduced to the minimum, planting distances provide a greater number of plants per hectare. All this is aimed to lowering the yield per plant thus creating the best conditions to obtain the highest quality grapes.
The harvest is done entirely by hand and this allows to keep greater integrity of the grapes and to make a first selection. So, It proceeds to a soft pressing and a fermentation temperature control, which is essential to preserve the aromas. This is why the winery is equipped with modern stainless steel tanks designed to ensure better hygiene.
