After the last eruption, 130000 years ago, nature found back its balance giving birth to a terroir with extraordinary features. Since then, the majestic volcano Vulture vigils above this territory, feeding a simple and spontaneous viticulture, full of small old vineyard “a capanno” (small 2/3 cane “tent”). Our 20 hectares are completely biological.Pierpaolo Sirch, viticulture expert and responsible of our vineyards,
manage the property in the belief that through allowing the plants and the soil to reach their balance it is possible to obtain the best fruit with the less work and intrusion. All our vineyards are in the most vocated area of Barile, between 450 and 600 mt above sea level, facing South-East. Among them “The Historical”, a beautiful old vineyard where vines grow on traditional “capanno” together with olive and fruit trees,
which makes our work quite complicated but gives us the best satisfaction on the field and in the glass. The harvest is done exclusively by hand. This allows us to pick grape by grape at the right moment, considering that, even if very close to each other, the micro-zones can be very different by soil and climate. The soil, volcanic, tuff stone and flysch in add to temperature range, enriches our wines full of fruit with unmistakable characteristics of freshness and minerality.
