The estate is located in the rich and flourishing countryside in the north of Treviso, and the vineyards are situated on the plains and hillsides near Piave River.
The wine is vinified off the skins and fermentation is completed in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures.
The main difference between a wine created with or without sulfites is the special attention that is paid in the vineyard as well as in the cellars to avoiding grape contamination. Sulfur is used in winemaking as the main antiseptic, preventing the grapes and wine from suffering the attacks of bacteria which could negatively affect or damage the wine completely.
The wine making process without the use of sulfur means that the hygienic conditions have to been extreme during harvest season. The grapes are harvested solely by hand in small crates. Every effort is made to avoid breakage and bacteria attacks. The wine deposits are filled very briefly so as not to delay the delicate fermentation process.
All elements that come in contact with this no sulfite added wine are subject to the most extreme hygienically conditions.
Pebbly and permeable soil. Allowing good drainage.

- Tasting Notes:
Lovely garnet and purple-hued wine. Aromatic with spicy tones, sandalwood, cigar box, tomato stem, and cranberry on the nose. On the palate bright red fruit, rhubarb, mulberry, red plums, and crushed herbs dominate with a dusting of coffee and milk chocolate on the finish.NM
Deep bright ruby color with a violet cast. Rich aromas of chocolate covered toasted coconut, grilled and herb marinated peppers, and strawberry-grape liqueur, a supple, silky entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with notes of tart apples, clay and pencil shavings. A great sipper or table wine to serve with grilled fare.Tastings.com
- Enjoy with:
Prato and Cheddar, morel mushroom pasta, Quiche Lorraine, French onion soup with gruyere, or a buttery puffed pastry generously filled with walnuts, ricotta cheese, and Italian chestnuts.
