Since the 80’s Francesco Valentino began to convert his land to organic farming, but he came to find he wanted more from the vitality of his vineyards. In 2000 he implemented biodynamic farming. These practices are thanks to his studies on Rudolf Steiner, an Austrian scientist/thinker who touched on endless fields of human endeavor, including biodynamic farming. After a few years of biodynamics, he realized there was still something further to be done. Francesco studied the works of Masanobu Fukuoka, a farmer/philosopher known as the father of modern day natural farming. At long last, he implemented sustainable agriculture, in which all synergies in his vineyard ecosystem were linked: the Synergistic Agriculture, a balanced ecosystem.
This blend hails from the Salento IGP in the region of Puglia, the region encompassing the entire heel of the boot. With biodynamic farming taken from Rudolf Steiner’s teachings, it uses native yeasts for its fermentation. The wine ages for 5-6 months on its lees in steel tanks. The wine is a perfect representation of Mediterranean wine meant for seafood and cheeses.
