  • About The Producer

Everything started when as a child Denis Morandi tended to his grandfather’s vineyard. At the age of 18 Denis achieved his dream of creating his own wine. The vineyards are situated in Loro Ciuffena (near Arezzo) where the climate is ideal for growing Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon grape varieties.

Denis utilises natural winemaking methods and pays meticulous attention to keep yields low and make a rigorous selection during the harvest, to ensure that only the finest grapes are used to making his wines. He selects and picks the grapes by hand and fermentation occurs naturally, with no additional yeast and only a limited use of sulphites. The phases of the moon dictate the timing of the racking and bottling processes. Denis’ winemaking philosophy is respect for the natural environment so as to create distinctive wines that are rich in aromas and flavours.
