the Project

For years we wondered where we would find a terroir of our own, obsessed by the search for a geology of our very own.

The years went by, bottle after bottle, field after field, and finally it appeared before us, like a teacher who appears just when the pupil is ready to learn. It had always been there, only a few kilometres away from us, looking down on us from above, shrouded in mystery, an orphan looking for a guardian, an interpreter in search of someone bold enough to believe.

Altitude, snow, temperature excursions, geologically ancient land abounding in calcareous sediments that are transformed into flysch and volcanic sand as the elevation increases: it is here that we decided to cast down our routes and begin our adventure, listening to this place and becoming the first to give it expression in a wine, like explorers of a new-found land.

Free of rules and regulations, curious to learn, inspired by the master craftsmen who had been monopolising our glasses for years: our dream finally came true, here on this ancient volcano, Monte Amiata, a blank page we hope to write, bottle after bottle.

Farming

We feel like pioneers on a new frontier! We have plenty of enthusiasm, but our professional experience, and the many glasses we have sampled over the years, have taught us that we must have the courage not to intervene, to give nature the freedom to act.

We believe that the starting point is accepting our role as custodians rather than captains, seeing nature as our greatest resource in order to make a wine that is an authentic expression of the terroir, a win in which nature, that is, life, is neither hindered nor dominated.

and Craftsmanship

Where people have taken more risks, both in the vineyard and in the wine cellar, stepping aside in the knowledge that what is at stake is the absolute beauty of things sculpted by nature, incomparable to the best that can be crafted by a human hand.

We grow our vines on the basis of the principles of biodynamic agriculture. It’s important to us to offer a clear snapshot of the place and the season, and we prefer long, slow processes in the wine cellar, representing the microcosm that is this place.

We use containers of various kinds, mostly neutral and porous. We don’t disdain the stems, or fermentation of whole bunches of grapes; the wine itself will show us the right way. All we can do is be sensitive, confident craftsmen.

One thing is for sure: we’ll have fun doing it!

It’s a matter of putting your trust in the place and in the fruit it bears, allowing it to complete its transformation with indigenous yeasts; the more we interfere with the grapes or the vines during this process, seeking to direct their path, the farther we go from the direction the grape would naturally have taken, and this is how the terroir is revealed, becoming the voice of the place. Good wine, revealing all the details of a complex terroir, must be allowed plenty of space; nature must be free to reveal itself, both in the vineyard and in the wine cellar, and man can facilitate this flowering by putting himself at its service, or else he can impose his own convictions and ideas, dissolving the spirit of the wine.
