Above the Punta Penna’s headland, the cool and salty winds from the Adriatic Sea constantly cross our vineyards, keeping the vines dry and healthy. In very hot years, the winds freshen the vines.
Moreover, with the natural grassing we get a balanced nutrition for plants because the herbaceous cover acts both as a solar panel in the Spring and as an insulator in the Summer, also limiting soil erosion.
In September, the grape is ripe, we harvest it only by hand, using small carts or in 20-kg-boxes. Then we destem the cluster within only 20 minutes, just to preserve the best quality.
