'Our farming philosophy is based on our acceptance of the fact that man will never be able to understand nature’s full complexity and interactions. We therefore choose to concentrate on observing and learning the movements of Mother Earth in her various energetic and cosmic passages and prefer to follow her indications as to what to do, instead of deciding ourselves. Consequently this has taken us to avoiding all possible interventions on the land we cultivate, including any treatments, whether chemical, organic, or biodynamic, as these are all a mere reflection of the inability of man to accept nature as she is and will be.' - Frank Cornelissen
100% Nerello Mascalese from a partly ungrafted vineyard; Campo Re. 735m above sea level and characterized by richer soils, the 2019 vintage is tannic and more akin to a Nebbiolo.
