Like many of the top vineyards in France, who set best practice, and who average 7 hectares in Bordeaux, we are fortunate to have 5 hectares in the best terroir in our region with access to the best equipment.
“To transmit the flavours & scents that nature has given us to the glass” we believe that there are 8 steps where the best wine makes can distinguish themselves.
Step in Process
|1. Optimal management of vines||Easier to care for plot of only 5 hectares|
|2. Thinning 10-15% of reds||All top producers do this|
|3. Optimal timing of harvest||Smaller plot allows quicker completion|
|4. Careful selective harvest||Possible by hand thanks to small plot|
|5. Internal quality control||Few small producers have a lab|
|6. Cold soaking (pellicular maceration)||Only cost effective in small quantities|
|7. Containment of perfume||Innovation for our size|
|8. Handling grapes with great care||Equipment unusual for small producer|
This has been reflected in how our top wines receive recognition in Italy’s most prestigious competitions at 1st attempt
