Many people think that good wine-making is simply linked to a land suitable for cultivating vines, good technology in the cellar, and a good winemaker. This may sometimes prove true, however just these elements alone, although essential, are not sufficient in making a good product. We truly believe that a "GREAT WINE" must come first and foremost from a passion for one’s work. It is the true reason which drives the vision and talent towards the achievement of goals and towards excellence. One must love nature intimately in order to ask for a respectful balance and then obtain the desired fruit. One should not over-exploit the generosity of the land beyond that which it can obviously grant. There is always a moment of silence when facing adverse weather-related events. They do not only represent destruction but they also serve in teaching us that man arbitrarily alters the balance of nature for reasons which are often driven by pure hypocrisy and selfishness. Becoming a grape-grower, a sustainable viticulture, means respecting the ecological balance.
The science and the knowledge of monitoring tools that we possess are the confirmation that our work has been done with care, commitment, rigor and discipline. The pruning of the often generous wines is done in order to achieve an ideal balance. It is what makes nature want to give more. That which remains is surely the magical fruit which contributes in making a "GREAT WINE"!
The territory, passion and quality.
