Everything is born because a child asked that it not be forgotten vineyard of the grandfather.
Denis at the age of 18 years of age driven from the tales of childhood to that vineyard, and realizes the dream of creating his own wine, because the fruit of the choices of a past day and of the passion for the vineyard and a load of memories and feelings, which makes the wine a strong personality, enhancing the grapes of our tradition, the Sangiovese.
Hand pick these grapes, the and select and with anxiety wait for that time to take its course...
Wine is a product of the soil, and it is here that our work begins. In the period following the harvest, we work the soil between the rows and plant 32 varieties of quick-growing grass and herbs,
which will combine with the humus we spread to add organic nutrients to the soil that feeds the vines.
My family prune the vines manually, maintaining continuity and full respect for each vine.
When the vines begin to flower, we treat them with the natural disinfectant to make sure that no damage is done to the eco-system of our vineyard. We select and pick the grapes by hand and fermentation occurs naturally, with no additional yeast and only a limited use of sulphites.
The phases of the moon dictate the timing of the racking and bottling processes.
We pay meticulous attention in the vineyard
to keep yields low and make a rigorous selection during the harvest, to ensure that only the finest grapes are used to make this wine.
