Interview with producer
Which are the future projects for your cellar?
The company is planning the realization of a new building destined to the reception of the customers and visitors finalized to the showing of the wine making process and for the wine degustation.
In your opinion, how much is important the improvement of the quality of the wines you produce?
The quality aspect is one of the most important part of our company and we look after it with so much passion with the aim to offer unique and juicy products to the people. For this reason, every single bottle, before leaving our cellar, is checked and numbered on the bottom by hand and it goes with its own certificate.
If you have to convince a customer to buy your wine, what would you say to him?
I would say that we take care of all the producing process, from the vineyards preparation, to the picking of the grapes and finally to the bottle. For us it is always be a passion and the fact to share it with people is a huge pleasure and gratification.
Which is your favorite thing of your work, and which is the worst?
The fact of working in a familiar and harmonic ambient makes it fascinating and so every single task is stimulating.
If the Prime Minister would call you and he would ask you a wine for a very important dinner, which wine would you suggest him, and why?
An important wine for such an illustrious person is surely the Negus, whose name means sovereign.
This is an intense red wine of great power and structure, full of tannins, made by 100% Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. It is powerful, with a great personality, and it has to be drunk with an important dinner based on aging cheeses and with red grilled meat.
If you have to give an advice to all the cellars of your territory, what would you advice?
I would love to intensify the collaboration for a growing of the entire territory to have a common growth which is an advantage for all of us.
