In 1974, quite by chance, I had the opportunity to move from Varese to Castagneto Carducci, and from the Agricultural School of the University of Milan, to that of Pisa.I began working as a student on a fruit and vegetable farm, which belonged to somebody who wanted to modernise his farm. I encountered a method of agriculture that was just emerging from the share-cropping system, and attempting to keep pace with the rapid mechanisation and development of modern agricultural techniques. In practice I spent all day with the farm workers, from whom I learn much. They gave me a passion for the daily relationship with an environment that is above all based on friendship. I am marked by a love of the land and for this work, and am enthused with the energy needed to meet the demands of Nature and reap her rewards. The other decisive factor is the love of a wonderful woman, Lucia, who has followed me right from the beginning, and with whom I have a large family, Caterina, Anna, Benedetta, Veronica, Maria and Giacomo. So with their encouragement I have worked to create my own wine estate. Lucia has been involved in the enterprise for many years and today is as enthusiastic about making wine as I am. Read less
