Cultivation is carried out with love and respect in a vineyard that consists of both international and native grapes. With a tight-knit group of skilled and passionate people, we are committed to the principles of sustainable agriculture in our cultivation methods. In campagna ci impegniamo a mantenere l’ecosistema vigneto in equilibrio, per noi fondamentale per la produzione di uve di qualità.
After being harvested, the grapes are brought to the winery in small crates to be crushed immediately. The entire fermentation process is performed in concrete tanks and we adopt the technique of maceration on the skins for part of the white wines. At the end of fermentation, the wine is aged in concrete, in barrique or in amphora.
Picco della Vigna
Uva di Troia variety is located at the tip of our vineyard and is the most late variety of the harvest. In mid-October, when the leaves are yellowed and with the colors of autumn, our vineyard gives us the last production of the year. The vines are twenty years old and are cultivated with guyot and spurred cordon on a clay and calcareous soil, characterized by the presence of iron in depth and by particular hydrothermal crystals. The resulting wine is called Nero di Troia and it has unique characteristics: floral notes, tannins and great finesse. As per Apulian tradition, we combined Nero di Troia with Montepulciano, a grape with typical fruity scents and soft tannins. Together they form an elegant and sincere red, juicy and fresh in the mouth.The fermentation takes place in concrete tanks and the aging continues in concrete, amphora and barrique for eight months on the fine lees. Finally, the wine is left to rest for three months in bottle in order to make it harmonious and define its personality.We chose not to clarify nor filter, to keep the characteristics unchanged and give always different emotions to each sip.
The love for the vineyard and for wine is the driving force of our work.
Our vineyard is a living and healthy ecosystem, in which vine-grower, beneficial and spontaneous plants coexist and work in synergy. It is our beleif, that when nature is supported and respected, it gives us wonderful gifts: beautiful colors, wild foods and high quality grapes.
