Tasting Casa Benna wines, a family business in the land of Gutturnio

The hilly vineyards of CASA BENNA® have an area of about 10 hectares and are exposed to the south-east.

The soils consist of ferretted clays, characterized by a rather inhomogeneous soil composition. When a vineyard is planted, along the rows, lateral openings are left every 30 to 40 meters. This allows, in harvest, to separate the grapes according to the maturation parameters and their characteristics, and to press them into separate tanks.

It is enough to move a few meters to find different grapes and then get different wines: some more suitable for aging, others more suitable to be drunk young. At CASA BENNA® you will never give up this careful selection in harvest, which therefore happens and will always take place manually in small crates and with a selection almost surgical collection.
