They currently have different plots that extend over 4 hectares, which they cultivate biodynamically. They produce "Brunellos" with a lot of ageing potential, together with fresher and juicier natural reds.

The grapes are harvested by hand to respect them as much as possible, and to ensure they arrive in the cellar as whole as possible.
