Country & Region
Italy - Gioia Del Colle
The vineyard is located 365m above sea level with vines planted in a north-south orientation and is a mix of clay and limestone, rocky and packed with minerals. Thin layers of red earth mixed with limestone and silica sit on huge fossil-rich monolithic reefs confirming the origin of this land and the name of the locality Spinomarino recalls its original shape: coastal prominence in the strait of sea which submerged the low surrounding lands.
The family ensures the greatest care in every detail: organic farming, no irrigation, spontaneous grassing with green manure. Use of a modern espalier version of the Alberello Pugliese training method with double head to fruit, vines are planted to a density of 4000 vines per hectare.
Fermentation of the must with skin contact for 240-300 hours

Application of music therapy to optimise spontaneous micro-oxygenation and improve the fining of the wine
