From 1986, it was managed by brothers Bruno and Gianni, who constantly modernized the vineyards over the years, and since 2011 Gianni and his son Andrea, an enotechnician, have taken over management of the estate.

Description: During the ripening of the grapes we thin out the bunches to optimize the yield and then hand-select them before they undergo soft crushing. Selected yeasts that respect the fragrant aroma of the product are added to the must. At the end of temperature- controlled fermentation, the wine is drawn off and racked. Complete malo- lactic fermentation takes place in steel. The wine is then cold stabilized and prepared for bottling.
