The winery itself is a family run affair headed by Natalino Cognaletti and is based in Montecarotto. Natalino inherited the estate from his father Gino, who himself inherited it from his father Enrico. Enrico was also a master cooper, and Gino spent much of his life selecting old clones of Verdicchio from ancient vineyards. This particular Verdicchio comes from vineyards located to the west of Ancona in the dei Castelli di Jesi region. The area's proximity to the Adriatic Sea is believed to add a touch of saltiness to the wines.
