The company was born from the desire, matured over the years: to be able to produce a great Syrah through the peasant tradition of the Amerighi family. To achieve this objective an area of Cortona closed called Poggiobello di Farneta has been identified, and within it, two well-exposed hills to the south-south-west, enclosed between an old gravel road to the west, a wood to the south and the ridge of the hills to the east to close the horizon. The geological and climatic investigations carried out on the farm then confirmed that this was the terroir we were looking for to plant the clones and our selections of Syrah, carefully chosen in the Rhone Valley. The management of the vineyard follows the dictates of natural viticulture and biodynamic agriculture, all this to be able to bring the healthy grapes to maturity and to allow it to be vinified with the total absence of correctives and chemical products.
