Craft Winemaking

Situated in a clearing in woods high up in the Appenine hills, our winemaking aims to capture the special character of our unique location.

In order to do so we keep everything small-scaled and tailored to the particular parcels of the vineyard.

Our yields our kept exceptionally low, below 4tonnes per Ha to maintain perfect quality.

We pick the grapes in micro parcels, usually 0.6 Ha at a time, and vinify each parcel in its own steel tank and age it in its own set of large oak tonneau.
