This family holds 500 years of traditional and knowledge for the region. When asked, Paolo, one of the four siblings running the estate today, if the family follows organic methods in the vineyards and he’ll laugh. We’re not “organic,” he says as if you had asked about some crazy new technology. "We just do everything the same way our ancestors have for hundreds of years". Want to be transported to Liguria? a few sips of this will take you there.
Soil: Rocky red clay
Farming: No sprays and allows for biodiversity in the vineyard, the same way his grandparents treated the vineyards.
Pairing: Fresh seafood
* "The rocks in Varigotti have an unusually high aluminum content; as the rock breaks down the aluminum is released and washes into the clay soil, where over several years it oxidizes and turns red. This soil is found only in Varigotti and certain areas of Provence (which is just a few hours away by car)". - Notes on soil by the importer, Kermit Lynch
