The care of the vineyard


NOTHING IS MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN A VINEYARD CURED AND BALANCED. “A WELL-WORKED VINEYARD IS LIKE A HEALTHY BODY, A BODY THAT LIVES, THAT POSSESSES ITS BREATH AND ITS SWEAT”. IT IS THE MEETING POINT OF ALL THE NATURAL ELEMENTS (EARTH, SUN, WATER), A SMALL OPEN-AIR LABORATORY.

Most of the work in the vineyard is done by hand. We use the same techniques and we dedicate the same care and attention to all our vineyards, whether planted to Nebbiolo for Barolo, Barbera or Dolcetto. In summer, we make the manual thinning of the bunches, the so-called green harvest, in order to decrease the yield and promote optimal maturation, giving the wine concentration and extract: a production deliberately controlled to obtain the maximum return in terms of quality. We prune the leaves in excess in order to give the grapes the best exposure to the sun and reduce the risk of molds.

The harvest is done strictly by hand to select only the healthy and fully mature grapes. The perfect moment to begin picking in each individual vineyard is determined by the ripeness, the sugar and the acidity content of the grapes, and overall weather conditions. The bunches are collected in small crates of 20 Kg in order to preserve their integrity, until they are crushed in the cellar.
