Our mission is to operate to the best respecting traditions and transfering, as much as possible, the nature and the identity of our territory from the vineyard to the bottle.
We age our wines mainly in large oval Swiss and Austrian oak barrels (mostly Stockinger), mechanically very hard woods that do not release intense scents and aromas (such as Vanilla, typical of other oaks), allowing the wine a right macro-oxygenation and to be the real leading actor.
We produce "Lessona", the wine offered by Quintino Sella in 1870 to toast the unification of Italy and "Coste della Sesia".
For our finest wines we expect at least three years of aging in wood, and after having bottled them we refine them at about nine meters below the ground level for at least another 3-5 years.
Although it is a small winery, Pietro divides the various "grand crus" as the French often do. We produce about ten labels for only 7 hectares and three cultivated varieties of vine: Nebbiolo, Vespolina and Erbaluce.
