In 1998, still just for fun but with great enthusiasm, he planted another 5 hectares of vineyards at Castelnuovo Dell’Abate of which, unfortunately, he only managed to wintess the first harvest. My father would have probably wanted me doing anything but this job: too dependent on atmospheric agents, uncontrollable, independent of human action. Curiously, what he saw as an obstacle sounds like freedom to me; anything he looked at as a risk was an opportunity. I turned what used to be no more than his “hobby” into a job that truly fascinates me, also thanks to the guidance of Giulio Gambelli, who has always been at my side, protecting me with professionalism and competence. Since then, a lot of wine has gone through our barrels, dreams and projects have eventually taken shape, leaving me more and more convinced that making wine is my true passion. Il Colle’s Brunello, Rosso and Come Se are indeed my “bright future“, just what my father had hoped for me
looking at that “C”.
