Grown on clay and sandy soils in Monterosso – Castell’Arquato at 260m above sea level. The wine macerates for 30 days on the skins, then ages in cement vats for 10 months.

Situated in the low lying hills of the Val d’Arda just outside Piacenza, near the medieval town of Castell’Arquato. Established in 1935, this family winery is now run by its young owner, Massimiliano, and his father, Ermanno. Massimiliano is the third generation of the Croci family to cultivate this land.
