The vineyards extend
over 48 hectares (120 acres) with perfect year-round south exposure
during midday. The soil is of eocenic origin and is formed by marly
limestone with some clayey areas.
In ancient times, the sea covered the whole area, and thus the soil contains large quantities of minerals available to the vines and crucial for their optimal development. With this climatic and geological prerogatives, the vines can reach quality peaks.
The grape production, deriving only from the own vineyards, is much reduced, thus favoring a high concentration of the skins, which result rich in antocyan and noble tannins. The grapes are picked by hand with great care and collected into small baskets.
