The Doglio vineyard, where the vines are grown, is located in the heart of Italy in the region of Umbria. The ancient viticulture tradition here traces back to the Etruscans who began growing grapes 3,000 years ago. Sitting atop a steep hillside nearly 2,000 ft above sea level, the vineyard benefits from cool air and excellent sun exposure due to its high elevation and northwest position.

The vineyard was planted in 2008 with two main varieties, Sangiovese and Syrah, with only a few rows of Merlot. The soil is mostly a mix of clay, loose natural substance and minerals. Every single variety is harvested and processed separately with respect to the proper maturation point.

BOTTLED AND PACKED AT THE VINEYARD, THE WINES CAN BE SHIPPED INTERNATIONALLY

Next, the wines are fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats and moved—after the alcoholic fermentation—into oak barrels where the malolactic fermentation takes place and the wine continues aging.

Barrels are then chosen for each individual variety: a mix of new and used French oak barriques for the Syrah, a mix of barriques for the Merlot and tonneau for the Sangiovese. All the wines are then further refined in the bottle, labeled and packaged to be shipped all over the world.
