About The Producer, Colombaio Di Santa Chiara :
The Colombaio di Santa Chiara turned to viticulture in 2002, when on the initiative of Alessio, the youngest of the three brothers, he decided to become part of the wonderful and complex world of wine. Alessio had started studying oenology and the passion had involved him so much that he wanted to put his studies to good use.
From here come wines that do not fear time and generously reward the patience of waiting. Deep and complex wines that know how to capture the freshness of an ageless landscape, guaranteeing the utmost respect for the vine and for this reason, among the first, we decided to make it an absolute protagonist of the glass, vinifying it in purity.
