The scent of an ancient and authentic wine
The pure Passerina grapes of " Costafredda " are grown on soils mainly composed of sandstone and clay for wines with a strong character.
The vineyards are located approximately 400 meters above sea level and the land is worked using only natural fertilizers and decoctions of the best wild herbs on the estate: the fertilizer used comes from the cows that graze in the nearby land and eat only what nature provides.
The harvest is carried out manually and spontaneous fermentation takes place in the cellar thanks to the action of indigenous yeasts in steel; subsequently it ages for 8 months again in steel before being bottled.
