Our vineyards are to be found along the Enza river, at the feet of its surrounding hills at an altitude of 150 meters. The earth is typically alluvial, rich in clay and limestone, with a high degree of gravel in its substrates, which provides excellent rain-water drainage. The proximity of the river and its hills creates a microclimate perfectly suited to the cultivation of grapes: significant thermal shifts between day and night, and constant breezes during the day.
The high levels of magnesium and limestone in the soil give our wines a noticeable bouquet, while the presence of so much clay gives the grapes high concentrations of sweetness and aroma. These characteristics are enhanced by the very low yields, obtained via significant potting and repeated thinning of the vines during veraison.
The management of our vineyard is 100% natural and biodynamic: we do not use weed-killers, pesticides, or chemical manure or procedures. Furthermore, we have also chosen not to use irrigated water at all.
In our cellars, we regulate the temperature, and do not filter our products; we do not use any additives, so everything happens in the most natural way possible: each day, we taste and check our wines and musts, during both fermentation and fining, so that we have a better insight into the development of our wines and the processes at play.
All our fermentation is natural and spontaneous, except for rare occasions when we are required to use selected rising agents.
