    Winemaking Philosophy

    An incredibly varied landscape of rolling hills, located near the majestic Apennine Mountains, yet kissed by the refreshing sea breeze, a tapestry of expressive nuances.

    Transportation of grapes

    In this winemaking philosophy, patience, listening, and an outlook toward the inherent potential of each vineyard play a pivotal role. The aim is to craft wines that not only respect the environment but also showcase the unique characteristics of every grape variety.

    A rigorous scientific approach is meticulously applied at every step of the production process. The winegrowers and a team of skilled winemakers engage in a continuous and dynamic exchange, fostering a constant flow of knowledge and expertise.

    This collaborative dialogue ensures that the entire supply chain remains up-to-date and aligned with the latest advancements in the field. The underlying ethos revolves around embracing the complexity of nature, harnessing its intricacies, and striving for excellence in every bottle produced.

    Wine Tower

    The interior of the wine tower has served as a remarkable source of inspiration for the winery's logo, imbuing it with new layers of significance. The tower itself is an imposing concrete structure, designed by winemaker Emilio Sernagiotto in 1964. The 25 meters high tower encompasses four floors, each equipped with 16 tanks, boasting a total capacity of 22,360 hectoliters that is the equivalent to 3,146,000 bottles or 25,168,000 wine glasses!

    A vibrant and determined generation, skilled vintners, and the exceptional quality of carefully selected vineyards come together in an ongoing dialogue to achieve unparalleled standards of excellence.
