Quantico is a wine that speaks to the heart, and like all love affairs is a “leap of faith.”
With this background begins the path to a completely natural product, without added sulfites, controlled and predictable in its natural growth path, but left free in its evolutionary dynamics. A specific methodological choice, synthesis of family winemaking tradition and innovative techniques, and intended as a “viable alternative” in that old relationship between science, consciousness and nature, which has always linked the actions of man to the ground.
Quantico expresses the natural balance between energy and matter, between intervention of the winemaker and the environment, taking care first of all plant health and therefore man. The vineyard, since its installation, is conducted without any addition of fertilizers and pesticides.
