Traditional wines of Piacenza, from Val D’Arda
Our vineyards grow on Ancient Red Lands, the oldest of Emilia Romagna.
The rows of vineyards are planted in a north-south direction, to expose the grapes to maximum sunlight; these grapes are used to produce the DOC wines of the Piacenza Hills: Gutturnio, Ortrugo, Malvasia, Bonarda.
Let us introduce them.
Drink wine in winter for cold, and in summer for heat. (H.G. Bohn)
These include young fresh wines like the Gutturnio Frizzante and well-structured full-bodied wines like the Barbera or Gutturnio Superiore.
This wine should be eaten, it is too good to be simply drunk. (Jonathan Swift)
Highly perfumed and refreshing wines which are delightful to drink, but especially to pair: we recommend them with cured meats, tortelli pasta, risotto and, of course, fish.
I like, on the table, when we are speaking, the light of a bottle of intelligent wine. (Pablo Neruda)
They were produced to accompany long aperitifs, long lunches, and long chats: they are drier wines and never cover the flavours of the food. They are not tiring on the palate.
Wine is a successful effort to translate the perishable into the permanent. (John Arlott)
We dedicate the best grapes and more refined production techniques to the range we call Selezioni. They are wines that age well and improve over time.
