Creating an excellent niche production is the aim of our work.
VIGNA VESCOVO E VIGNA LE PRATA
GEO-PEDOLOGICAL INFLUENCES ON THE PECULIARTITIES OF THE WINES VIGNA VESCOVO AND LE PRATA (similar vineyards for geopedological characteristics)
The marked temperature changes due to altitude in the post-veraison periods contribute to a better phenolic composition, to the synthesis of elegant and complex aromas, to a significant reduction in acid degradation.
The discreet depth of these hilly soils combined with a good structure with a balanced texture and good internal drainage with never excessive water supplies, guarantees a balanced development of the vine. The significant presence of very altered Pliocene pebbles combined with the acid pH, favors the release of precious minerals and trace elements useful for the vine and precursors of the synthesis of fruity, intense, elegant and persistent olfactory notes. The wines obtained are particularly elegant and fragrant with a moderate structure, aromatic, spicy and complex.
Vigna del Vescovo
6000 m, vineyard of 2017
Sixth of implant 75/230
Characteristics of the soils Vigna del Vescovo
The vineyard extends on a linear slope with a modest slope, with North-West exposure, consisting of marine polygenic conglomerates from the Pliocene period (3-5 million years) at an average altitude of 515 meters. The reddish soils are moderately deep, rich in pebbles and altered skeleton, with a predominantly sandy clayey texture, non-calcareous, with an acid pH, well structured, well drained, with moderate water reserve.
Vigna le Prata
About 1 hectare, vineyard of 1988
Sixth of implant 120/300 spurred cordon
Characteristics of the soils Vineyard Le Prata
The vineyard extends over a sloping shelf formed by marine polygenic conglomerates from the Pliocene period (3-5 million years) at an average altitude of 507 meters.
The brown, reddish-brown soils are generally deep, with a frequent skeleton consisting of well-altered pebbles, with a predominantly sandy clayey texture, non-calcareous, with an acid pH, well structured, well drained, with a high water reserve.
VIGNA MASSIMO AND SAN PROSPERO
GEO-PEDOLOGICAL INFLUENCES ON THE PECULIARITIES OF VIGNA MASSIMO AND S.PROSPERO WINES (similar vineyards for geopedological characteristics)
The moderate depth of these soils combined with a good structure and good internal drainage with optimal water supplies, induce a balanced development of the vine.
The significant temperature variations due to altitude in the post-veraison periods contribute to an excellent phenolic composition, to the synthesis of elegant and complex aromas, with an optimal acidity in the musts.
The predominantly clayey texture, with a significant presence of clay given off by the marly fraction of the Limestones, favors a robust structure and intensity of color.
The moderate presence of limestone ensures elegance, persistence of the olfactory notes and high aromaticity.
The mineral component of marly limestones, as well as the presence of fragments of an arenaceous nature, induce the synthesis of fine olfactory notes of red fruit and berries.
The wines obtained are powerful, remarkably long-lived, rich in polyphenols, of an intense color, with a robust structure and high aromaticity.
