We started by studying the soil, microclimate and rootstocks, identifying the individual parcels of land to concentrate production of vineyards, so that each wine originates from a well- defined area of land, identified on the basis of detailed research, expressing the concept of cru in the fullest sense.

From this experience the Tullum Dop was created, a new protected designation of origin area which is currently the smallest in Italy: an important recognition for Tollo wine production and for anyone, like us, who has strived for years to bring dignity to the winemaking of this area.

We are currently undertaking a zoning project, coordinated by Prof. Attilio Scienza and involving a group of researchers from the University of Milan, to deepen the knowledge of the specific characteristics of this terroir, and to enable winemakers to work with increasing awareness, to improve production respecting the environment and without wasting resources. 

Our wines come from a place where the use of environmentally sound techniques is fundamental to the whole production, not only the organic one. Currently we cultivate 15 hectares of vineyard using only native varieties. This vineyard produces limited yields (not more than 80/90 quintals per hectare).

In line with the cru philosophy, each plot of land was selected based on its pedoclimatic conditions and good production: only high-density hill or mountain vineyards (not less than 3,300 vines per hectare) within a well-defined area.

To mature the wines, we only use glass-concrete containers and bottles in the cellar, with the exception of Reserve wines, not only to ensure thermal stability without resorting to refrigeration, but also to allow the wine to express its natural qualities without coming into contact with wood. Only wild fermentation is used for the organic wines, for the Igp Rosé and the Pecorino Tullum (indigenous yeasts only), with minimal processing and no filtering.
