W h o w e a r e

I define myself as a winemaker who has a philosophy to express in the bottles I produce, that of interpreting the tradition and characteristics of my area in the best possible way while respecting the territory and the fruit it generates.

To produce quality wine, an immense passion is required which for many years must be the only goal. If then a better job is born, but it must be a consequence of the maniacal care of the vineyards and the land on which our Sangiovese Cabernet and Merlot are born.

To make great wines you need great grapes. These are obtained by researching the biodiversity of the area, with biological care of the land, respecting and interpreting the climatic conditions of the year in the best possible way, with daily attention to the care of the vineyard, with the sole purpose of achieving perfect ripeness of the grapes.

And then finally comes the harvest, the period in which every winemaker feels the tension and responsibility of the work of the whole year. Tension and joy are a feeling that every winemaker feels during this period. The grapes are all harvested by hand in small boxes, and carefully selected on the sorting table. Bunches that are not perfectly healthy and ripe are discarded.

This allows me to vinify only perfect grapes which in the end is my real purpose as a winemaker.
