A special contrada due to its geology, from a pyroclastic period, which usually brings complex wines. The property used to belong to the La Piana family and was a “clos” of about 2,5ha, surrounded by stone walls. Besides the geology, this site has a special and peaceful atmosphere. We are keeping a small part of the old vines for the moment until the newly planted parts are productive and give the right fruit. Until then the grapes will go into the base red or rosato. The wines are generally multi-layered, combining elegance, depth and structure. This will be a promising site for the future.
