In 1999 a new wine cellar was excavated under the old barn and is used solely to store the barriques for the ageing of the Teroldego. These small barrels are piled up in pyramids; the lighting is almost sacred and the setting artistic. Yet this is a functional space, with an ideal climate thanks to the loam plaster on its walls.
The Teroldego is kept in barriques resting on gravel from the River Noce. The entrance has large, smooth stones piled up against the wall, beautiful large pebbles that magically draw the visitor down the steep steps. Balancing warmth and coolness, the familiar and the surprising, coarseness and refinement, nature and culture to create a harmonious whole are its unique features.
