A LOOK TO THE FUTURE
The New Cellar
A new red and white wine cellar has been built with “Lem type” truncated conical vats suitable for the separate vinification of each grape type in order to fully explore the peculiarities and potential of every one of the 90 hectares of vines. The aim is to increase the quality of all wines, with particular attention to native varieties such as Malvasia Puntinata and Cesanese. Finally, the entire range of wines being produced was reviewed and the packaging changed.
Life is too short to drink mediocre wines.
The age of the vines ranges from 7 to over 40 years. The row training system (guyot and spurred cordon) is used for cultivation, the plant density varies from about 4.000 plants per hectare for white grapes to 5.000/7.000 plants per hectare for reds.
Typical, local white varieties are cultivated, such as Malvasia Laziale, Malvasia di Candia, Trebbiano Toscano, Greco, Grechetto and Bombino. Yet, there are also small plots of vines with innovative and international varieties such as Chardonnay, Incrocio Manzoni, Traminer, Riesling, Semillon Blanc and Falanghina.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and above all Cesanese are cultivated in the well-structured, medium-deep surrounding soils with a high lapilli content.
Wine is one of the greatest conquests of man who has transformed a perishable fruit into something permanent.
