Postalesio (SO), in Valtellina.
The work in a vineyard follows nature’s rhythms and moods, as the fruit slowly ripens.
My inspiration came from the idea that the bunches of
Nebbiolo grapes, which we had nurtured since
they were on the vines, could continue their journey in an
environment with minimum contamination and in the most natural
Today’s technology allows us to reach high standards of quality and to respect the source ingredients, the people who work for us and the environment. This is why I decided to follow the CasaClima Wine energy certification guidelines.
The new CasaClima cellar is situated in Postalesio, in
Valtellina. It looks out towards the peaks of the Orobie
Alps and is surrounded by vines.
From the outside it seems to be a simple, dark red oblong building, by contrast the inside is rather complex. It was originally designed on three floors, with a total floor space of 3000 square metres, to transform the naturally fallen grapes into wine. On the top floor the “appassimento” takes place, this is the process of drying the grapes before they are crushed. The middle floor is dedicated to the fermentation and then the wine is aged in the basement.
Our environment is so efficient that we can cool it down with an ice cube and heat it up by lighting a match!
It’s not easy to put into words, but I can assure you that it’s a life enhancing feeling.
