The vineyard consists of three areas, two in the Castelli Romani area, one in the city of Cori area. All are registered I.G.T. Lazio. The farm is about 80 hectares, 38 are planted with vines and the rest with orchards (kiwis). Since 1993 the method of cultivation is organic agriculture, therefore without the aid of synthetic chemicals, both for treatments and for fertilization. All in compliance with the European regulation and above all the environment. In Le Ferriere area, Borgo Montello (Latina) we grow the red-berry vines. It is the company’s headquarters. In the winery, during the grape harvest, the grapes are processed and the real birth of our wines. Here also there is the shop dedicated to direct sales. In Doganella di Ninfa, in the D.O.C. Cori area, we grow almost all the white grape varieties, with the exception of Montepulciano and Nero Buono. Here, in a farmhouse surrounded by a large garden and vineyards, there is a room for tastings and events.
The excellence of technology at the service of tradition
We work with cutting-edge technological equipment, which allows us to preserve the wine from external agents and to fully respect its naturalness. The tanks are all stainless steel and have a temperature control exchanger. The stainless steel winemakers use the Bosio method or submerged cap, which allows the efficient automation of an ancient technique. The press is the latest in technology: it gently extracts must and wine (0.7 atm), works vacuum (vacuum system) and with the help of inert gas (nitrogen) the pomace is never in contact with the ‘air. Thanks to the vacuum system the pressing of the marc is done in a soft way and allows to obtain the best must. Nitrogen prevents oxidation and facilitates the operator in compliance with the European organic wine regulations, allowing to drastically reduce the antioxidant substances (sulfur dioxide).
We use the espalier system with Guyot pruning or spurred cordon. The plant density is 4000 plants per hectare. Our land is cultivated with grapes: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Montepulciano, Nero Buono di Cori, Sauvignon, Malvasia Puntinata, Pignoletto, Falanghina, Grechetto, Chardonnay and Viognier.
