We always try to let taste our wines to an higher number of customers and to keep to aim for quality. In addition, in few time we are having the biological certify which would be very helpful.

I would suggest to use less of chemical products, so the wines can express better the original territory where they come from.
In the last years the web commerce is expanding a lot, the online wine shops are growing up more and more; how do you consider this market news?
I think it needs time as for all the things and I think the online sell of the wine is a difficult sector.
Why have you decided to commit the sale of the wines to the online wine shop Uritalianwines?
Because their sell organization could work, due to the fact that this online wine shop selects the wine by going on the different territories and I also knew personally the owner of Uritalianwines. Then I’ve noticed that they have good quality wines and the quality I think is the most appreciate aspect for the consumer.
Which is the wine you would suggest to the online Uritalianwines customers and why?
The Barbaresco because is a typical wine of my territory and I think that the ones who could have the possibility to taste the Barbaresco of the Agricultural company Lano would never be disappointed.
