About Winery and Wines
The expression of an authentic Italian emotion and the absolute quality of the wines are granted by the constant commitment of the winemaking and agronomists team and the precious advices of the famous wine maker Riccardo Cotarella. We invest in indigenous varietal and in biodiversity, we take care and mantain our forests and we enjoy to welcome wine lovers and guests, in our historical homes, who want to live and breathe the aromas and flavours of our wines and cuisine.
