Passion for knowledge, sensitivity and insight, love in values. You will realize what’s in your heart. Claudio
My wines are what we are. To talk about my wine is to talk about each emotion I would like to be found with the same intensity in every glass, every sip and every glance.
Te frst light of dawn, the spring rains, the moment when I could tell no, every little smile, the power of elements and the calm that comes afer the storm.
In every bottle there is a story comes from afar, between the emotions of a lifetime dedicated to this craf and the warmth of a family that has never given up.
If wine was one of the most important signs of civilization for Hemingway, for Claudio Cipressi it’s giving value to the land where he was born - Molise. Molise is a beautiful region with a unique landscape. It is largely uncontaminated and the vineyards have great potential, which is why Claudio cultivates 16 hectares with enthusiasm. He has reintroduced the Tintilia vine as well as two other native white grape varieties. Te native grape vines he grows now include: 11 Molise Tintilia, 2 Montepulciano, 2 Falanghina and 1 Trebbiano.
Claudio’s cultivation method is strictly organic out of respect for the environment, the farm is ofcially certifed as organic and since 2014 also the winery is certifed as organic. He is extremely picky in choosing which grapes to harvest, selecting each bunch by hand. In the wine cellar he uses a traditional, non invasive method to process the grapes. He pays a lot of attention to the temperature of the grape must and to accurately use the barrels for perfecting the wine. No fruit is added during aging, which alters the taste, and so the original ﬂavor of the grapes can be tasted in every sip.
