Philosophy

During this years, with two winemaker friends, I created a small and particular selection of wines made under my supervision in the companies that I work, and we called it “ Le Formiche”.

I choose wines from particular vineyards with a historical value, representing little and unknown enological pearls.

I do my selection exclusively in small farms, most of the time run by families, who for generations concentrated their cultivation on a particular grape variety, always is in the same hill.

They are realities still far from the commercial market, where the vineyard raised and wine is produced with the 3 engagement and knowledge of the past.

In this selection of wines there are generations that tell stories, farmers’ wisdom, love for the earth and what comes from it. It is, in my opinion, the chance to taste unique wines at a moderate cost.These wines are the work of many men and women still unknown to the world, but who are guardians of real treasures.
