A new installation is the beginning of a long road, the land is ploughed depth (the “scasso”), “barbatelle” (vine cuttings) are planted after marking lines that cut the hill accurately, in order to avoid hydrogeological instability in the future, new vines are grown with a detailed and patient manual labor.
Poles are planted and iron wires (“frat”) are stretched to support vines in the following years.
Two years of work follow: pruning, handling of vine shoots, treatments against possible diseases, milling of vine rows to keep them free from infesting grass, all without cropping.
During the third year we have a limited production of grapes, and starting from the fourth year we have a full production.
Five years pass from the moment of the “scasso” to the full production. Five years of investments, work, passion and wait.
