The Cianis are unfailingly committed to making wine while respecting the environment in which the family lives and works. Dialogue and exchange with new cultures are matters of course. This well-integrated team with distinct, complementary characteristics makes Aquila del Torre an estate with a family feel yet perfectly at ease with the mechanisms of the evolving world market. We believe we are the caretakers of the biodiversity that is present on our farm and we work the soil with respect and attention to preserve the natural inclination of the land. This is the idea that has brought Aquila del Torre to practice organic farming and then to approach Biodynamics. We manually harvest all the grapes so that selection can be carried out with extreme care in the vineyard.
Our first certified organic harvest dates back to 2013. With its incredible biodiversity, this is exactly what the territory was demanding. Since 2015, we have followed the principles of biodynamic agriculture, distributing the main preparations during the year, using green manure and allowing the land to grow spontaneous grasses to increase soil fertility. The painstaking care and attention coupled with a pruning team with many years of experience ensure a constant quality in the cultivation of plants resulting in a fruit that perfectly expresses its territorial features and is ready to be transformed into wine. We use animal traction to work the soil as this enables us to not over-compact the earth and to operate in small spaces and on vineyards that grow on slopes.
