“The discovery of a good wine is increasingly better for mankind than the discovery of a new star”
(Leonardo da Vinci 1452-1519)
The Territory

The holding is located in Barile, a small village in Southern Italy where life goes by slowly and marked by centuries-old rhythms.
Barile lies on the slope of Vulture Mountain, an ancient and extinct volcano. The Mediterranean climate and volcanic soil facilitated grape and olive plantation since the Roman Age.
Our vineyards and olive trees are sun-warmed for most of the year. They are placed deep inside the pristine territory of the Vulture Mountain, on the top of breezy hills at about 500 meters. The hills are renowned for their tuffaceous and volcanic soils as well as for the constant ventilation.

The Mediterranean climate, the altitude of the groves and the volcanic soil give our products a unique balance and a rare and peculiar taste.
