In 2000, we found land in Riparbella
where we could establish our project:
an extreme and modest place, mainly clayish
and with many stones, uncultivated for many years
and surrounded by Mediterranean shrubs.
This is a hill that smells of the sea and forest.
It faces the coast at an altitude of 820 feet.
There is sun, light and a continuous breeze
that guarantees temperature range, fundamental
for bouquet and slow maturation, the promise of perfect balance
The shape of the slope looks like an amphitheater,
where we have planted three vineyards:
Cabernet Franc on the top, Merlot towards
the bottom, and a small goblet-shaped vineyard
of Syrah in the middle, the heart of our estate,
over a very rocky and dry soil.
In 2014 we will plant three more hectares
of Cabernet Franc at 1150 ft. altitude, situated
in the fantastic hollow around our winery, so that
the total extension of the vineyards will be more than 10 hectares.
