WHY DO YOU BIO?
What are the difficulties in making grapes using the organic method?
“Our winery is dominated by a non-invasive attitude towards wine: a low-invasive attitude because of its high technology. We make the most of everything that technology can offer us: for the fermentation of Sagrantino we involved the University of Perugia and we selected with them the yeasts autochthonous from our grapes.
This has led us to highlight the olfactory characteristics of the grape: the small red berried fruits are very strong especially in years with a slow ripening. The dictates of organic farming allow the use of fish glue, casein and albumin, but we avoid them.
We respect the vocation that each type of grape expresses, and every day we work to enhance the identity of the individual vineyard”.
