The vineyards are located on a hill about 500 mt. above sea level, in the town of Acquaviva Collecroce, about 30 km from the sea and 70 km from the city of Campobasso. The position of the vineyards led to an ideal pedoclimate for Tintilia.
In that zone the soil is mostly clay. The climate presents good temperature range, not only between seasons but also between day and night. The area is well ventilated even in summer, and the temperature between day and night can vary up to 15 degrees. Even a careless walk through the rows denoting incredible care for these plants. There is no irrigation and the production is controlled to achieve the highest quality from the vineyard: that gives strength to the plant. The buds are selected and spaced for better growth. The green grapes are thinned to allow the most beautiful and best sunny arriving in harvesting and thinning of the leaves before harvest allow a perfect maturation of the grapes.
The vineyard is protected from fungi and parasites through a few treatments with sulfur and copper. The well-ventilated area reduces the moisture and allows to avoid the growth of fungi. All this attention and meticulous care is the result of a family culture, based on respect and love for the land. The level of sulfites present in our wines is less than that allowed in organic farming.
