Goethe said: "Substance is nothing, what counts is the gesture by which they are made." And the first thought that I've learned from winemaking was to accept. Accept the diversity of soils, the slope of the ground, the altitude, and the originality of a vineyard. To accept means to respect. To respect the earth and its balance. Respect the vineyard with skillful gestures of sensitive agriculture. To respect the fermentation through the use of local yeasts. Respect the wine as if it was a person. A person who takes with him/her, a world, a history, an atmosphere. And it tastes like the land which it was born from. Mine is not just an organic wine. It is a natural wine as I think about myself, that's how I am. It comes from my sensibility towards true things and from my Gestures, and my loving attention. A wine that, in its harmonies and roughness, talks about the land where it comes from and also about me. That's why I think that natural wine, besides being a good wine is also a human wine. Based in Vittoria, her vineyards see the Iblei mountains at the front and the Mediterranean Sea at the back. They are located 250 meters in elevation and because this area was underwater during the Miocene epoch, the soils range from clay, calcareous, tufo, gold sand, red sand and light sand. “The soils change every meter and so do the wines made from those sites,” says Arianna. All of her wines are certified organic and made according to biodynamic methods.
