Lo scenario perfetto
Un’aria d’oro mite e senza fretta s’intrattiene in quel regno d’ingranaggi inservibili
fra cui il seme della noia schiude i suoi fiori arcignamente arguti e come per scommessa
un carnevale di pietra simula in mille guise l’infinito.
(Vittorio BODINI Dopo la luna, 1956)
A working farm Since 1930
Our winemaking tradition dates back to the 40s, a period in which, by conforming to the criteria of the time, we produced wine in large quantities to be sold “by the tank”. In the late 90s a project was initiated which aimed at producing quality wines. After a costly soil preparation with accurate analysis of geological, excavations, frangiture and grinding, we implanted has about 20 cultivars of vineyard: Negroamaro, Aglianico, Primitivo, Malvasia Bianca, Susumaniello; over the years it has begun a search for extinct indigenous variety that has led to new experimental facilities and a real ampelographic collection of Salento.
Next to the underground Oil Mill we built a wine cellar, for aging wine, according to the architectural tradition of the Salento area with star vaulted ceilings and only using local materials such as local lime and sand stone, which many Italian and foreign visitors say to be, “The cathedral of wine.”
We are in Cutrofiano…
in the center of the Salento peninsula.
