“The quality of the grapes comes from the care one gives to the vineyard, with the right production, not exaggerating, with the quintals, so you bring home good grapes. You see those nebbiolos up here…we thin out…you take off the extra bunches. There’s a choice in early July-mid July you leave 7 to 8 bunches per plant and then the bunch that’s left is stronger, with more energy, generating more color, more structure, more alcohol.”
“The berry on the favorita is very large, contains more water and you get a lighter product. On the arneis, on the other hand, the cluster is smaller, the berry is smaller and therefore contains less water and remains a little more structured and full-bodied.”
“This is a plant that unfortunately because of the drought this year is drying out, the grapes didn’t ripen, they stayed small, so they don’t have an acceptable sugar level so we leave them on the plant. If you harvested by machine it would all go into the cauldron. By harvesting by hand you have a sorting of the grapes. If there is the bunch you don’t like, you throw it away. The machine can’t make the choice that the person makes.”
