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 is a rosato made from the Primitivo grape from the region of Puglia. Fruit comes from clay and limestone from 22 year old vines. The maceration of the juice on their skins is 12 hours long and fermentation is done in stainless steel.
