The Terrain

THE PONCA: A WEALTH OF BIODIVERSITY

Comprised of marls and sandstones of Eocene origin, this particular type of terroir looks like a mosaic of limestone pebbles in different sizes that, in addition to giving the land a unique and evocative appearance, ensure a balanced ripening in the grapes, preserving their minerality. It is a fragile and precious land, to be worked with dedication and respect. The result? Wines that stand out for their aromatic complexity and freshness, expressing all the most typical characteristics of the vine.

Tenuta Della Casa has just over 5 hectares of vineyards, located mainly in the Collio Doc area in Novali, duly proportioned between whites and reds according to the now-consolidated reality of these areas. The varieties cultivated are almost exclusively native, with the exception of a small component destined for the Resistenti, in a logic of continuity between historical plants and new grafts. With respect for environmental sustainability and the bees that inhabit these lands, the management of the vineyard follows the guidelines of the voluntary integrated defence.

The Grapes

In the heart of Collio, where nature reigns supreme, we grow our grapes with love and respect, growing the plants according to the principles of voluntary integrated defence. This philosophy guides us in choosing to always use (whenever possible) natural solutions in caring for the vineyards, avoiding the use of herbicides and fertilising the soil with the manure of our horses, which in turn feed on the fodder produced naturally in our fields. This cycle respects the environment and biodiversity, allowing us to be sustainable. Truly.
