VINEYARDS

Our four vineyards represent the variety and complexity of our territory’s characteristics. They are located in three regions of our country, Barbassano, Casale and Mattine in the Candriano district, on the border between Torella de'Lombardi and Paternopoli. During the year, in each of the vineyards, the buds are tied up along the trellis to attain a high leaf canopy, selectively stripping the grapes on the end to better deal with adversity while ripening, and thinning out of excess bunches to produce the finest quality of grapes.

It’s orientation is on a hill, generally facing southeast, the vines positioned at 2.00 x 3.00 meters . The soil is of medium texture, mostly clay, alkaline, with a medium-low yield, for a complex and elegant wine, suitable for medium to long-term aging .
