Carlo Dibenedetto was a winegrower, his son Francesco Valentino Dibenedetto has been a farmer since he was born, and after university he became agronomist.
Since the 80’s Francesco Valentino began to convert his land to organic farming, but he observed that the vitality of his lands was not like he supposed to. That is why in 2000 he implemented biodynamic farming thanks to his studies on Rudolf Steiner’s cultural legacy. After few years of biodynamic he realized that there was still something that could be done. Francesco Valentino studied Masanobu Fukuoka’s thought and finally he implemented a sustainable agriculture, in which all synergies in the ecosystem are linked: the Synergistic Agriculture. This one incorporates organic and biodynamic agricultures, but it also deletes ploughing, which is considered a wrong practice.
This new adventure involved his wife Anna Maria and their four children: Carlo Nazareno, Domenico, Andrea e Maria Clelia. Thanks to their cooperation and constant care, they built the new wine cellar, made of tuff blocks (called tufo in Italian), where the specific climatic conditions give them precious grapes in order to obtain wines with no chemicals use.
Following Francesco Valentino’s vast knowledge and under his leadership, the new generation gave vitality to the farm.
Tasting Notes: Black pepper, cumin, bruised blackberry and crushed mulberry on the nose give way to dense black cherry and plum.
