nique, intense volcanic minerality buzz through this lean palate of cirus, stone fruits, wet stone & a touch of funk.
Mario Macciocca, former Italian national football player, turned wine maker. Mario works with four hectares of biodynamic vineyards on red soil of volcanic origin, at an altitude above sea level of about 380 meters, gently sloping and with maximum sun exposure.
Mario predominantly grows Cesanese, which is sheltered from cold and temperate winds by the Scalambra mountains. He also grows Passerina and Malvasia Puntinata. In the cellar Mario works only with spontaneous fermentation and native yeasts.
