who we are

Our family has inhabited the lands of Leverano, in the heart of Salento, for five centuries. We have always listened to the land, understood it, and made it fruitful. In the early 1900s, we succeeded in completing the full production cycle from cultivation to vinification of the grapes from our estates, without ever altering the delicate balances of the place. Over time, the identity of people and place has overlapped, binding memory and nature together. A harmonious correspondence made of passion and respect, guarded with the calmness and discretion of those committed to doing things with care.

how we work

It all begins in the vineyard, where choices in agronomic management set the initial direction for the entire production style. The selected vineyards for our Cru production cover approximately 20 hectares distributed amongst Leverano, Veglie, and Salice Salentino.

wines

Over the decades we had the opportunity to meticulously know and study every parcel of our vineyards. This has allowed us to identify single vineyards whose soil and climatic characteristics show a pronounced vocation for a specific grape variety.
