The research in new tastes and sensations starting from an experimentation from the vine to the aging method passing through the making process.

The best thing is looking at the entire wine making process, from the fruit to the bottle. The worst thing is the impossibility to describe all the hard work there is behind a bottle.
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?
I would suggest him the Roero DOCG because it represents not only my company but a whole area from which it takes the name.
I would match it with tajarin (egg pasta) with butter and sage with some white truffle picked in the little wood near the winery.
If you have to give an advice to all the cellars of your territory, what would you advice?
I would suggest him to participate more and more to the promotion of the Roero territory which is full of place for tourists who love the gastronomy.
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?
It will be the future for the new generation and as for all the changes, it is slow but now we can send orders when you are on your car or in movement when almost 5 years ago you could not even send it at home.
Why have you decided to commit the sale of the wines to the online wine shop Uritalianwines?
For us there is a certain feeling between the buyer and the winery that in some other online wine is not so evident. In addition the foreign wine sell is a surplus for us. Then we think that in the future the online wine will grow a lot as for other countries in the world.
Which is the wine you would suggest to the online Uritalianwines customers and why?
The Roero DOCG because represents my winery and all the area where we are located.
Other reasons is that it is really appreciate around the world for its quality and it won several international prices beyond being presented in Italian and international food guides.
