Pinot Grigio minimum 85%
Origin and history of the grape variety
It originated in Burgundy (a budding mutation of Pinot Noir) and the French name “pinot” comes from “pin” which literally means “pine” because of the shape of the cluster like a small pine cone. It is not a white grape and, when ripe, is reddish-gray or coppery. The winemaking techniques used condition the color: from fermentation without the skins, we get a wine with coppery tones, while in contact with the skins the wine has a pinkish color.

In the vineyard
Cultivated in huts (Abruzzese tendone or pergola), the form of farming that most restores the vine’s natural vegetative development. In the hut, on a horizontal wire roof, vines grow harmoniously and naturally, and the leaves catch wind and sun. A form of farming that cannot be mechanized and is therefore tied to the manual skill and experience of the winemaker. Vine cultivation in the hut will endure as long as the small peasant property survives.
In the cellar
100% Demeter biodynamic grapes.
Spontaneous fermentation works with what nature provides each year and relies on the strength and health of the soil and the vineyard to obtain grapes rich in yeasts essential for fermentation in the cellar. The spontaneous fermentation of wines is the fundamental condition for giving birth to a wine that can restore the authentic flavors of a territory.
