‘We don't like stories even if we would have a long one to tell you. We just make wines paying attention to the natural balance of our plants, without forcing their biological rhythm and physiological health. All processes in the vineyard and in the cellar are made by us on the same principles. We carefully take care of the grapes we produce and use what we think is right to get healthy high quality wine.' Marco Branchini
The winery is located in Dozza, in the center of Emilia Romagna region. It covers 70 acres cultivated with vines. In 1858 the Branchini family commenced its agricultural activity on these lands. Since then, the Estate continues to be managed by the family which has, over the years, refined its techniques in order to continually improve the "Character" of the territory's wines. This choice has given way to experiments in the vineyard including new ways of planting, new varieties, selected harvesting and continuing research on the characteristic vines of the area. The vine growing operations are geared to avoid "forcing" the biological process and to maintain the physiological balance of the wine itself. The Land, author and seal of our wines, owes its characteristics to the three rivers that flow through the Estate. The Sabbioso, Sillaro and Sellustra, over the centuries, have created the geological characteristics of this area. The alchemy of sand, clay and lime together with the microclimate of this location confer to the wines their own distinct character.
