Pinot Noir is widely grown in Oltrepò Pavese, but the soils of the Montecalvo Versiggia hills are especially fitted for its growing. Their calcareous nature enhances the best qualities of this grape variety. The growing of Pinot Noir is also helped by the peculiar microclimate of our area with medium-hot summer days and cool nights. We harvest the grapes in the last decade of August to keep a higher acidity. The grapes are carefully hand harvested and are taken quickly to the winery in small baskets; the pressing of the grapes is soft so to extract only the best aromas. The Pinot 64 rests on the lees for at least 36 months. The dégorgement à la glace is performed by us in our cellar.
We are now converting to organic farming, but we have always been committed to a sustainable approach to vinegrowing, using a minimum of pesticides.
