ABOUT: I represent the fourth generation of a family of winemakers. After studying Enology and Viticulture at the Faculty of Agriculture of Milan, I worked for a few years in a number of Italian wineries. Then, in 2008, my sisters and I decided to refurbish the old family cellars and write a new chapter in our lives.

For over 10 years the estate is run according to the principles of organic farming, an ethical choice, which year after year is paying off: we have renewed the vineyards, continuing to cultivate the grape variety Gaglioppo on hilly land located in the heart of the historic production zone of "DOC CIRO”.

We do not use selected yeasts or activators for fermentation of any kind. In addition, we try to minimize the use of sulfites. In the cellar we renewed an old cement cuve, which is excellent for the ageing of Cirò wine.
