About Winery and Wines

The Santa Giustina farm, inserted in the village of the same name on the hills above Pianello Val Tidone, in the locality of Arcello, is  a "slice of paradise".
Once through the gate, the visitor's gaze is fascinated by the large house all covered in ivy, by the completely refurbished old barn and by a consecrated church dating back to the 1000AD.

The property covers over 120 hectares, of which 15 are destined for vineyards and the rest for lavender, annual crops and woods, and has belonged to the Bucciarelli family for just under half a century.
In the seventies Antonio Bucciarelli, driven to these places of great naturalistic charm by his passion for hunting, starts a wildlife-hunting reserve which currently covered 800 hectares. It is one of the few places in Italy where partridges reproduce naturally and where the natural habitat of local animals is respected through a census and controlled and targeted culling.
Not surprisingly, the logo of Santa Giustina depicts a group of partridges in flight.
The purchase of the first vineyards and the desire to make wine with its own brand dates back to the nineties, but it is only with Gaia Bucciarelli, Antonio's daughter, that the adventure officially starts.
In 2003 the work of the cellar was completed, built by gravity and with a production capacity of up to 250,000 bottles.
The first harvest was 2004 and today the production volumes is around 100,000 bottles.

Today Santa Giustina is a company recognized and appreciated for the quality of the wines but also and above all for the great passion of Gaia which leads her to always explore new frontiers, with the help of Dr. Carlo Saviotti, winemaker of Santa Giustina since the beginning.

The vineyards occupy 15 hectares. We are between 280 and 350 meters above sea level and the soils are clayey, with a reduced presence of stones. Of the two corporate bodies (each around 10 hectares), one faces west and north-west; and the other embraces all the cardinal points, circling the village of Santa Giustina.
The different exposures of the rows, combined with the particular conformation of the land, offer multiple aromatic expressions, also enhanced by the proximity of numerous tree species that grow nearby.
The oldest vineyard is just over 45 years old and produces a very fragrant variety of Ortrugo, while the average age of the other vineyards is 15-20 years and they have all been planted by the Bucciarelli family.
The training systems chosen are the spurred cordon, which allows easy mechanization and the Guyot, indispensable in the case of the demanding Croatina, but not only.
For some years now, the Company has installed the atmospheric monitoring system of Hort@, a research company headed by the Catholic University of Piacenza. Thanks to this system and the software that accompanies it, the incidence of phytosanitary treatments has been able to drop significantly, to the advantage of fruit wholesomeness and animal welfare.
