“I’ve been walking the vineyards of the Maremma for 15 years, and I’ve been making wines in some of the best wineries of the area. In the last nine years I contributed to the success of Poggio Argentiera, along with Gianpaolo Paglia and Justine Keeling. It has been a time where I grew professionally and where I developed the ambition of making some wines with my name and with my character. The area I’ve chosen is my homeland, where I was born and bred, the area of the “high” Maremma, near the villages of Manciano. It is a very Maremman area, but at the same time very different from the coastal area and even from the more inland Morellino di Scansano area. I strongly believe that in these locations we can make wines that can talk about their terroir and that can be easily recognizable for their character and their class, and I want to prove it”.
