Blue Emotion

Here, in the last 40 years vine-growing has gone through radical changes both in terms of types of vines and land. Today the vineyards are found exclusively on the hills around the city of Bergamo, where they find the best south exposition and soil conditions, an ideal combination for wines that are loved and enjoyed around the world.

All the vineyards are quite small in nature, mainly located on high hills and splendidly cultivated with passion and love by their landowners. Their exposure is south, south-east, the soil is calcareous-clayey and the climate is ideal to give rich aromatic qualities to the grapes.

The vines have been trained with traditional and modern systems on organic grassy land in order to obtain top quality grapes, maximising tannin and flavour ripeness.

Next to the traditional Pergola in the last few years training system such as Guyot and Cordone Speronato (Spurred Cordon) have been introduced with a medium density of 4,000 vines per hectare.

It is in these hills that vines such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Schiava Lombarda, Incrocio Manzoni and Moscato di Scanzo find the best conditions for a wide variety of amazing wines.

The vineyards are open to visitors wishing to experience the breathtaking beauty of the hills and uncover the splendid origins of our wines.
