The first name Elio, is shared by my father and my son. This reminds us to stay connected to our roots while also looking forward to our future. We have been called an “Oenological tailor’s shop” for our unique attention to detail with each harvest, each wine and each label. Just as my father taught me, I will do the same with my son Elio.
What does it mean to be an Oenological tailor’s shop? It means I cater to my vineyards. I observe the plants and study the lines of their bodies. During summer, I love imagining the forms my wines will have after the harvest, in order to be able to nurture them and enhance them, so that they can fully express themselves. Managing a vineyard is about sensibility, not supremacy.
We start with a commitment to creating extraordinary wines. Each bottle must express its own original vision or an unprecedented interpretation of a classic. Whether international grapes or traditional grapes from territories such as Barbera or Muscat are used, we intend to tell the story of our family through our research and development work. Our wines are ready to leave the cellar only when we consider them complete and looked after up to the final detail.
