About the winery
Their farm holding area extends over 170 hectares, of which 22,5 are cultivated vineyards. The vineyards, consist only of native vines, and are grown by the Spurred Cordon techniques with a density of around 4,000/5,000 plants per hectare, that yield 58/60 quintals per hectare that allow the growth of excellent quality grapes. The agronomic operations are carried out with the maximum respect for the environment; the fertilization and thinning out of the bunches is done according to necessity, the harvest is done manually, in boxes and with various stages for the selection of the bunches. In the historic cellars, dating from the XIII cent., all CONTUCCI’s wines are aged in French and Slavonian oak barrels (between 800 and 2.500 litters).
