Marco and Adele Curto have been cultivating their 4 hectares of vineyards for more than 60 years, moving with the nature, like they have always done, taking care of each plant with the right type of attention, with great respect for the environment. Marco and Adele have two daughters: Marina, Primary School Teacher  and Nadia, who after severeal years of working in an external company, recently decided to help her parents to develope the family business. An important support comes from Elio Altare, Adele’s brother, who gives a big help with his utmost experience, looking at a production which leads to only quality. Curto don't use chemicals to treat the vineyards except for the traditional “poltiglia bordolese” ( a mixture of copper and sulph); they use natural manure to keep the soil alive, and when they need to contain the grass in the vineyards they simply cut it avoiding any type of chemical weedkiller. A careful winter pruning and a clever canopy management during the spring and summer keep the production limited allowing a complete and homogenous maturation, and letting the vines to live longer. The fermentation takes place by means of solely autoctonous yeasts, in order to better express the origin of the wines. Fermentation in stainless steel at controlled temperatures. Ageing in wood for minimum 30 months for the Barolo.
