Massimo Alessandri cultivates his vineyard in the heart of the Imperia hinterland, in Costa Parrocchia in Ranzo, a village that slopes down with spectacular terraces facing the valley.
The vines are all grown using the Guyot method on a seven-hectare plot at an altitude of 280 to 400 metres above sea level.
For a long time this area has been known for the cultivation of vineyards bravely placed between the mountains and the sea, favoured by the mild climate and the many precious days of sunshine. Moreover, the composition of the soil, calcareous-clayey, is able to provide the grapes with all the nutrients and minerals they need.
On this morphologically complex land, Massimo Alessandri works and produces wines that have experienced such extraordinary growth that he is himself considered one of the most reliable vigneron in the region, pursuing the highest standards of grape quality with passion and dedication.
Harvest after harvest, Massimo Alessandri harvests grapes that are healthy, pure and rich in every tiny organoleptic trace. The result is fresh, pure and elegant wines that speak of tradition, generous and tenacious wines that tell of the true Ligurian soul.
The cellar is equipped with the most up-to-date winemaking technology, used with the utmost respect for the most historic and solid local traditions. Before refining in the bottle, the maturation of the grapes for some types of wine, such as Viorus, Seiana and Ligustico, takes place in 600-litre French oak barrels; while for others, such as Vermentino and Pigato, the most modern temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks are used.
