The Sassonero is a steep hill located in Arquà Petrarca. Black, “negro” for the local people, it is the strand of dark trachytis that raised the sea floor, but so is the surface of red limestone scale that here is almost scorched by the summer sun. In this wonderful Mediterranean environment, surrounded by broom, almond and olive trees, we cultivate three hectares of highly concentrated Merlot, which ages for three years in oak barrels before being put into bottle.
