“Cava d'Onice” winery
Our winery represents for us an ambitious project to propose the product we believe in. Our rich “terroir”, our home, are invaluable for us and as such, we want to keep them for our children. We work the land of Montalcino with passion and perseverance every day of every season, waiting with endless patience the fruit it generates.
Despite our young age, we have constantly followed the process of Sangiovese in all its phases for several years by now, from early in the vineyard to the finished product.
Just for this evaluations, our individual passions and common ideals that we have decided to undertake our own journey, sure that our small contribution can be crucial to continue to convey what our land can produce.
As a child I used to follow my father, who was the cellarman of a large Montalcino winery for many years. Then, at the age of fourteen, I started working. So I began my farming experience in the vineyard, learning about the vines and the growing cycle. I learned to treat them, to prune them, to do grafts.
I strongly believe in Brunello di Montalcino and in the unique characteristics Sangiovese can express in this territory. Our wines have to be the pure expression of the territory in which they were born. Despite our young age, we have constantly followed the process of Sangiovese in all its phases for several years by now, from early in the vineyard to the finished product. We have always done this work for other producers, sometimes even for friends, who have listened to our suggestions and advice, but we have never boasted of our capabilities, just for the love we have always felt for this variety and for which we do not want a different fate.
