The history of the company is a history of men, and of the same dream: enhance their land and produce quality grapes and wines.
It’s a family story, grandfather, father and son, winegrowers and farmers. In the ’40s, it’s grandfather Angelo, who planted the first vineyards.
With determination and love for the land, his son Sebastiano in the 60-70s increases the company, working with passion, constancy and absolute dedication.
The quality leap is made with Angelo, the current owner who specializes the company in wine production and begins in 2001 the direct processing of their grapes and the production of DOC and IGT wines.
Combining the rural experience and modern knowledge and technologies is the belief of Angelo D’Uva, fully shared by his oenologist the young Donato Di Tommaso.
For both a good wine starts from a healthy fruit and the vinification must be simple and essential for the wine to be a honest and blunt expression of its land.
The winery and the vineyards
Wine is a man’s invention: man makes wine and wine “contains the hand” of those who make it.
Wine is always a mediation, a compromise between man and Nature. In our work we try to shift as much as possible this compromise in favour of Nature, promoting “in the simplest and most direct way” to expression of the natural elements contained in the bunch of grapes: the vine, the vineyard, the land, the vintage.
The heart of this activity is the vineyards
The 15 hectares of vineyards are planted in the hills, at an average altitude of 250 meters above sea level, reared with Guyot pruning, to allow the annual renewal of the fruiting head.
The planting density is about 4500 vines per hectare. The cultivation operations are aimed, in particular, to favor a natural balance of production vegetation with very low yields.
The calcareous clay soils give particular characteristics to wines: structure where clay is richer, refinement and elegance of bouquet where limestone and draining pebbles prevail.
Trebbiano, Malvasia, Falanghina and Moscato are cultivated for white wines;
Montepulciano, Cabernet and Sauvignon for red wines to which is added the autochthonous variety of Tintilia.
The replanting of this vineyard and the vinification of these grapes is the expression of an accurate company choice of rediscovery, respect and enhancement of the territory of Molise.
