The vineyard: territory and climate
From a climatic point of view the area offers average annual temperatures of 17°C-25°C. The annual average rainfall is 700 mm. The proximity of the sea has a positive effect on the temperature changes, all to the benefit of the aromatic fraction and color of the grapes.
These are plants that adapt very well to temperature changes and periods of drought, strengthened by the constant working of the terrain to stimulate the development of the root system.
The vineyard extends over 20 hectares, with production varying between 35 and 70 quintals per hectare, depending on the wine. Potential production is around 500 quintals a year.
The cultivation techniques that we apply in our vineyard are in constant evolution thanks to our close partnership with the oenologist Fabrizio Ciuffoli. We apply the spurred cordon system. The vineyard was created without excavation or re-modeling of the surfaces, using an ancient method of grafting in the field that conserves the rich biodiversity with careful selection of the best strains. The soil management is based around winter and spring grassing, sometimes using shrubs especially selected for green manuring, followed by hoeing that ensures aeration and creates a perfect climate for the root systems.
