“The most important tool in caring for our vineyards is observation. We commit considerable manpower to listening to our vineyards and gaining intimate knowledge about the soil, the plants and the climate. Our goal is to produce genuine wines that mirror the beauty of our terroir, expressing the special traits of every single vintage. My partner Max and I launched the Alliance with a view of giving Nobile its proper voice within the international wine arena, to elevate and preserve a wine of true nobility."
"Our grandfather Egidio was planting vineyards in the 60's with a stubborned and somehow crazy idea: bringing in a bottle for himself those flavours he wasn't able to find anywhere around but he had in mind. We are committed to preserve this same spirit and learnt how great and pure Sangiovese and the Montepulciano terroir are together. Sharing this with the other Alliance vintners is the perfect pursuance of this story."
"My father, Glauco – driven by passion and enthusiasm - conceived and designed a new ageing cellar in travertine marble and glass, with the help of our architect Alessandro Bagnoli. The new underground rooms, are fully integrated into our landscape and run on renewable energy sources such as geothermal and photovoltaic, are now home for our Vino Nobile. I believe that our land is our strength and together with the Alliance's producers I share a common desire of promoting Nobile’s excellent quality."
“There is an important distinction between good and great wines, it is personality. It arises only from a rarely suitable terroir, thanks to the hands of committed and knowledgeable people. In Montepulciano we have them both, and there’s no doubt that in a glass of the best Nobile there has always been a vibrating character, accompanied by incredible longevity. The Alliance group is committed to letting wine lovers rediscover and experience this character.”
“At the end of 1980, while enduring a general economical crisis and a decline in consumption, I accepted to take over the challenge of running the family winery from my father Dino. He had planted the first specialized vineyards of this territory in 1961. Since then I have worked tirelessly until today with this exceptional soil and climate to make it a modern terroir. After more than 3 decades I feel that it’s still expressing something new, in the bottle.”
“Since we’ve started communicating our ethical essence, achieved through our energy self sufficient cellar among other many environmental and social achievements, the most frequent question I get is: how does this make your wines better? My unique answer is that so much care and attention to every single detail, reviewed and innovated whenever necessary, cannot make it worse. So far, seeing the perception of our customers in front of each glass, it did quite the opposite and this is exactly the sentiment I share with the Alliance friends.”
