For a long time our father Luigi had dreamt of producing wine on the Vigne Alte, where the conditions are harsh as a result of the vary dry terrain. However, he had realized that in this same area the grapes were healthier and had stronger scent.
I've tried to make his dream become true by highlighting the the characteristics of the wine through a process in the cellar were I extracted the peculiar shades of these grapes. I did this respecting what nature could offer and remembering the precious advice my dad had shared with me.
As a result of this, a unique wine was born, rich with memories for me.
