What we do
Our wine holds so much: our knowledge, our love for the land, the land that has been passed on to us. The authenticity of a modest job that is
done with a huge heart.
Our wines are divided into 3 collections that are all bound together with a thread: the family thread.
Here they are!
The family at the table
Our basic wines are the ones that we usually put on our table on a daily basis. Red, white or rose, you choose. Wines that are elegant without being too demanding, they are perfect partners for delicious everyday meals. The family table: Classic Bardolino, Classic Rose, Santi, Aurora Sparkling Rose
These are the wines that Marcello personally wanted to plan and create. He tried and tried and made mistakes, he continued and he grew along with the wines. They are wines that truly respect the gift of nature. If things don’t work out like they should and the requirements are not there, we skip the year and try again the next. The wines are of limited amount because from the vines to the winery, they really do need a lot of love and attention. It really is impossible to measure the amount of passion and effort put into continuously wanting to give more and more and improve season after season. Marcello’s creations: Pinot Grigio, Ninì, San Fermo, San Fermo REvolution

How we do it
Grapes and vines: this is where it all begins
All of our vines are autochthonous and are situated in the south-east of Lake Garda, specifically in the Bardolino Classic wine area which is the heart of the where the local Veronese wine is produced. We currently produce 900 kgs of grapes from 10 hectares of land that is divided into 4 different vineyards.
How we make our wine
Our vineyards are respected using the pergola and guyot systems in order to ensure the grapes are always kept at the right temperature and have the best protection possible. If the year is too abundant then we usually remove the excess bunches to permit the vine the energy it needs to concentrate on the remaining bunches, so as to obtain high quality grapes.
The limited production (approx. 800/900 hectolitre) allows us to carefully follow each and every stage of winemaking, starting right from the work that needs to be done on the land. From the summer pruning, so as to sect the bunches through to the September harvest, all of the viticulture is done by hand.
We carefully follow every stage of the vinification process, selecting only the best bunches for our wines and ensuring the right fermentation of the must with the temperature controlled tanks. The art and the science of vinification make it a continuous learning curve and a true adventure. The real balance of winemaking is truly achieved when science and art come together creating a bottle of wine that is well worth drinking.Would you like to visit our vineyard and taste some of our wines
