They grow 21 hectares, all located in Loreto Aprutino, between 250 and 300 m above sea level, about 25 kilometers from the Adriatic Sea and on the first slopes toward the Tavo creek. The vineyards raise towards the 3000 meters of the Gran Sasso d’Italia, the highest mountain of the Apennine range. This particular position gives the vineyard a warm wind coming up from the sea during the day and cold air coming down from the mountain at night, especially during the last month of the maturation, when the Gran Sasso is usually blanketed by snow.
The harvest is made only through repeated pickings in the same plots, selecting only the most perfectly healthy and ripest bunches and leaving the others on the plant to mature until the next picking. Farming is compliant to the CE 2092/91 European law about organic agriculture.
The grapes, carefully selected in 20 kilos cases, are immediately brought to the winery, located close to the old farmhouse in the middle of the vineyard. There they are selected again on a sorting table to choose only the best. This process is applied to all of the grapes used in their wines, for the purpose of best expressing the potential of each wine according to its category. At the winery, the most advanced technology is dedicated to a traditional winemaking with respect for the genuineness of the organic grapes. The strong selection in the vineyard and at the winery admits only perfectly healthy bunches to obtain a quality wine with the smallest use of preservatives in accordance with organic and high quality practices.
