During the early 90's Beatrice Lucangeli and Stefano Aymerich di Laconi, both belonging to noble families with important historical heritage, traditionally linked to the agricolture of the Marche region, started transforming the estate's business towards quality wine growing and wine production, discarding the existing vineyards and equipment in favour of new ones, perfectly suited to the techniques foreseen by the rules applicable to the 'DOC' (Controlled Denomination of Origin) of the Marche region, that can be used in the provinces of Ancona and Macerata: Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, Rosso Piceno, Esino, Colli Maceratesi.
The present vineyards consist of 13 hectares where vines of the type Verdicchio dei Catelli are grown, 7 hectares of Rosso Piceno vines, 4 hectares of Esino Rosso, 4 hectares of Colli Maceratesi Rosso.
Recently the wine making facilities have been trasferred from an old building to a new modern underground structure disposing of the most advanced technical solutions, from soft-pressing, to the freat tuns for controlled fermentation, to the ideal environment for the ripening and refinement in bottle.
The extremely long acclimatisation of the verdicchio in Marche, the presence of which had already been documented by Costanzo Felici in 1569, has allowed to blend in perfeclty with the territory of which it expresses the precise organolectic characteristics which render it uinique among wines, and not only Italian ones.
A philosophy aiming at quality and at emphasising the value of the territory in the basis of our wines.
In an dominating position, with an extraordinary view onto Mount San Vicino and the Adriatic See, a mansion completes the estate. It is the result of a careful restoration of an old farmhouse with reception halls for customers, operators and connoisseurs.
