The winery is located in the municipality of Zola Predosa 11 km west of Bologna in the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna. In the Middle Ages the land belonged to the noble family Canossa and was farmed by Cistercian monks of the Abbey of Nonantola. The farm was founded in 1969 and today it is owned by Carlo and Maria Letizia Gaggioli. The vineyards cover 11 hectares. They are planted with the white wine varieties Pignoletto (Grechetto Gentile), Pinot Bianco(Pinot Blanc) and Sauvignon Blanc, and the red wine varieties Barbera, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The cultivation is carried out according to regional rules of integrated plant protection. The grape harvest is always done by hand.
In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".Prof. Dr. Walter Kutscher
