I represent the fourth generation of a family of winemakers, people who have dedicated their entire lives to their land. Choosing to stay and produce a wine of terroir and quality means renewing and honouring the winemaking tradition of my family and my land.

The Arciglione

This is the pruning tool which represents the keystone of the concept of "terroir". It is the sum of the territory, the climate, the vine, and the knowledge handed down by a community. It illustrates the hand of man at work and his responsibility to the environment that surrounds him.

This tool, more than anything else, represents the centuries-old tradition of Ciro’ viticulture, a symbol of the competence of the local winemakers who handled the tool with great skill.
