  • Vineyard Profile

    • The roots of the vines stretch out downwards into the clay-laden marine sandstone of the steep slopes of morainic hills dappled with patches of “molera“ a soft citrine rock. The stony soil with various depths allows the roots of the vines to penetrate deep into the ground as far as the bedrock. The grape harvest, rigorously carried out by hand on the steep slopes, the strenuous work, the passionate and continuous confrontation with the extreme terrain bestows the mantle of Heroic Agriculture on this wine.
