Spring is pressing on “full speed ahead”

Spring is pressing on “full speed ahead”, and the vineyard is rushing right along with it… The vines budded out quite vigorously this year, and helped by the warm temperatures of recent weeks, vine growth is running some two weeks ahead of norm. As you can see, we have not yet mowed the grasses, since we want to preserve as long as possible the “naturalness” of the vineyard ecosystem, for two reasons in particular: the benefits from useful insects, and the fact that the high grass “delays” development of some fungal diseases. So, fewer passes with the tractor, less foot-stamping, biodiversity, respect for the environment.

Cantrina Ventennale
On 13 May, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of our winery with a vertical tasting showcasing the three wines that, from our founding to the present, have become iconic. We selected the vintages of each that are most representative of the evolution of the blends, production methods, and ageing. The years tasted are: - Riné (1999, 2002, 2005, 2008, 2013, 2017) - Nepomuceno (1999, 2001, 2005, 2007, 2011, 2015) - Sole di Dario (1999, 2001, 2006, 2009, 2012)

For it was in “long-ago” 1999, amidst countless apprehensions, much enthusiasm, and just a pinch of bravado, that we decided to launch “Project Cantrina.” It represented above all the long-time dream of founder Dario Dattoli, who since the early 1990s dedicated himself to producing just handful of bottles—but made with meticulous care!—for his own enjoyment in his numerous restaurants.
