A mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Corvina grapes and Merlot. Medium-bodied red, soft and intriguing, pleasantly spicy and balanced.

San Pietro vineyards spread over 4 hectares around my house and our central operations. The grapevines, trained by Guyot and spurred cordon systems, are planted from north to south. Merlot is located on the southern terraces, facing east-west. We maintain a distance between vines of 2.20m x 0.80m , with 6000 plants per hectare .

The Balconi Rossi vineyard, acquired in the ‘90s, is located few kilometers away from our central operations. The grapevines are planted facing north-south with a distance of 2.20m x 0.80 and circa 6000 plants per hectare.

The land is not tilled and the grass in the vineyards is mechanically maintained, without the use of any commercial herbicides. Green manure is used to enrich the soil and increase biodiversity. Grapes are picked by hand, collected in cases and addressed after cooling within a few hours from the harvest.

Our white grape varieties are Garganega, Trebbiano, Trebbianello, Manzoni Bianco, Cortese. Our red berried grapes are Corvina, Rondinella, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

We are honoured to work this special land and produce the best wines our knowledge and tradition can provide.

The grapes are destemmed and pressed. Fermentation in steel with skins for 8-10 days. Aged for 12 months in oak barrels, tonneaux, barrique 12 months in bottle. 

Excellent with vegetable and mushroom soups, stewed fish, grilled red meats.
