The story: The Guido family has been growing and producing wine for almost 100 years. In 1925 their grandparents, with the graft on “American stubs,” saved their vineyard from the terrible “filossera vastatrix.” In the 1960s, despite the progressive abandoning of lands, their father kept on growing and planting vines. Nowadays, the rising generation, uniting the family tradition with agricultural and oenological studies, can blend experience with modern processing: soft pressing, refrigeration and crio-maceration. Their vineyards are difficult to tend to due to their placement on very accentuated slopes. The hilly conformation of the ground combined with the white clay soil and vines over thirty years old, make their wines full bodied, intense and aromatic.

Why you’ll love me: Light & mineral-driven notes of green apples and almonds.
