From the importer -
Grandfather Orlando, he planted a small vineyard for family consumption, in 1930, in Arola, in a place called "Groppone" (so named for the enormous slope of the land). His grandfather had many of the most varied grape varieties grafted by his brother-in-law, Oreste Cavalli, from the most famous such as Barbera, Bonarda, Sangiovese, Lambrusco Maestri and Grasparossa, Malvasia Aromatica di Candia, Sauvignon, Moscato Giallo, to those now disappeared. like the rare grape, the promised land, and still others of which we know only the dialectal term, eg. "Al besmén".
This denotes the great passion of the grandfather towards the viticulture, the Vine, even if he then pressed all the different grapes together, keeping only the white grapes separated from the red berried grapes. This personal "experimentation" of raising different qualities of grapes (using modern terminology, one would say "zoning") has proved to be very important for me today in dealing with rootstock and cultivar choices for making new vineyards.
