MONTE MASSA

The farm stands among the first hills of the Apennines, from which a 360-degree view of the surrounding area opens up, reaching as far as the sea. We are at 300 meters above the sea level. Immersed in the quiet, the "Monte" had been elected a place of considerable fertility since Roman times, suitable for hosting large expanses of vineyards and olive groves that follow one another relentlessly along the hilly surface. The soil, deriving from a substantially clayey substrate, has sequences of rocks consisting mainly of calcium carbonate. On average deep and easily explored, it is a source of well-being for the vine, which translates into slow and prolonged ripening with intact grapes thanks also to constant and dry ventilation that comes from the convective movements of the air that climbs the top of the hill during the day and vice versa at night (mountain and valley breeze respectively). In this small and unique Terroir an elegant and noble wine and an oil with an intense flavour are born.

COLOMBARA

The farm has its roots on the first hill of Predappio and leaves the Appennines behind with an endless view of the sea and a South-East exposure. This area is characterized by soils composed mainly of red clays, a good presence of silt and low limestone content. This soil has shown an excellent drainage capacity but at the same time a good fundamental water availability during the ripening of the grapes which correspond to excellent sugar levels, but above all high levels of colouring substances. The climatic vocation to viticulture of this farm has as an essential factor the proximity of the sea and the peculiar morphology of the hilly relief, the day and night breezes offer an excellent environment for quality viticulture. We find a significant response in Sangiovese. The vineyards, kissed by the first light of day, have a fifty-year history and are found in their maximum expression, devoting themselves fully to the fruit.

DEL TESORO VINEYARDS

More jewels in the hills of Romagna. Here we find soils of a very different nature. The vineyards enjoy a mild climate due to the nearby presence of the sea, the constant breezes mitigate the summer heat and the rigors of winter clean the sky and keep the insolation index high. To the North, in the lower part, the soils are more generous of a silty-clayey nature destined to varieties such as Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. The higher areas are characterized by a rather variable soil that ranges from the clay-limestone matrix to that of an alluvial character, both ideal for the cultivation of Sangiovese. Some lots on the southern slope of the hill have a limestone composition and after a long zoning process they were destined for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Here it emerges how the grape-soil interaction plays a different role in the final result of wines in different vintages.
