My ambitious project is to create a stunning red wine which could be the top expression of the land where I produce, Euganean Hills. I love wine! I like mostly the conviviality and atmosphere created by wine, and, in particular, I love producing it.
Since 1995 I am responsible of Ca'Orologio farm but cultivating vines, even if arouses my passion, and selling grapes, is not enough to me anymore. I need to put myself to the test and I have in mind the wine I would realise: my ideal wine!
The encounter with Roberto Cipresso, a skilful and creative wine-maker whose "purist" philosophy on wine I share, and the confirmation that he, who already experienced the territory, trusted as me to the project, made this challenge start. On my side I've put all the care, the devotion and the passion I could, the all of us have put their harts and we are pleased with the results. The way is all uphill, but I don't care because I trust on it and, otherwise, what satisfaction would it be?
The real wine :
I set myself the aim of producing a wine that is a real portrait of these lands, accepting that, in unfavourable years, the result could not be that dreamed of, but when the year will be good then I'm sure that ours will be a great wine!
