The estate today has an extension of 7 hectares of vineyards, all of them located on the island of Ischia, the diamond in the gulf of Naples, in the South of Italy, in the commons of Lacco Ameno and Forio D’Ischia. The vineyards are installed on volcanic soil with good phosphorus contants and potassium. The system of viticulture is the traditional French “Goujot” with a plant density of circa 5000 vines per hectare, with a careful clone selection for each of the vines, giving a yield of 7,5 to 9 tons per hectare. The range includes autochthonous varieties for the white wines: BIANCOLELLA, FORASTERA and FIANO and for the red wines: AGLIANICO and MONTEPULCIANO.
The meaning of the estate is: “MAKING LESS MEANS MAKING BETTER” (a native tradition epitomizes quality.) For making a selection of the best grapes, the harvest of them is only handmade. This gives the guaranty to have a final product with a high quality. The episode for the harvest is September/October.
