Embracing modernity without forsaking authenticity, Stefano’s approach champions natural methods and purity of expression. From hand-selecting ripe, aromatic grapes to shunning additives and enhancements, every step is a tribute to the intrinsic character of Franciacorta.

Free from the trappings of excessive manipulation, his wines exude fragrant aromas, impeccable balance, and an unmistakable elegance.
