Born and grew up in the rural countryside, the family rediscovered after years a deep love for the land and its origins.
The old farmhouse and the "casotti" were restored and a natural spring on the property was brought back to life.
Upon advice of expert oenologists and experienced local viticulturists, we embarked with passion and dedication on this unusual yet challenging adventure, ruled by the rhythms of nature.
In the wake of a peasant tradition, the vineyard were replanted to autochthonous varieties, in areas which are particularly suited for growing the local grape varieties.
We decided to adopt methods designed to give priority to achieving fruits of the highest quality.
