Vineyard

Located in the Trebbia Valley, the one that connects the Po Valley to Genoa across the Ligurian Apennines. This hilly area constitutes a balanced ecosystem of vineyards alternated to woodlands and crops, making up a perfect model of biodiversity. The gravelly soil is the most ancient of all the surrounding areas and is overlooked by majestic magmatic peaks such as the Pietra Parcellara. The breezy and crisp climate, the soil properties and the expertise of man produce grapes with unique aromas, then turned into truly authentic wines. Soil composition is mixed: the upper layer is clayey – silty, the deeper layer is clay gravel and sandy gravel.
