the land

The area of the Conero Appellation (DOC-Controlled designation of origin) is split up into three subzones with different lithological substrates: the steeper area (the mountain itself) is made up of marly limestone and flint. The smaller and more rounded hills on the edge of the mountain are characterized by marl, while the adjacent hills present marl, pelitic rocks and calcareous banks. The winery is positioned in this third profile, in which the vineyards grow on sandy-clay soil, distinctly limestone, with layers of tuff and a variable depth of 10 cm to 2 m from the surface. The presence of many marine fossils helps one intuit the soil's origins and to understand the mineral richness of its wines. Moreover, coinciding with the winds from the north and north east like La Bora, it's sometimes possible to observe an unusual "white powder" on the surface of the grapes, a combination of the marine salt accompanied by the wind. In this natural landscape, Montepulciano grows in all its vigor and expresses its potential every year giving a unique experience in its complexity.

the Climate

The climate is characterized by a union of typical continental elements with other distinctly Mediterranean ones which tone down the rigors of winter and the heat of the summer. Winters are moderately cold and humid ( January average about 5 degrees Celsius) with precipitation, frequent fog and snow on the hillside. While the summer is hot and muggy (August average about 22.5 degrees Celsius) given the sea's proximity. The end of September and October are usually cool and with relevant temperature ranges between day and night, allowing recognizable aromatic richness.
