BIOGRAPHY

I have been working in the fascinating world of wine for over 25 years. I received my degree from the Oneological School of Siena in 1983 and then began working with the doyen of Tuscan oenologists, Giulio Gambelli (towards whom I have an enormous debt!), with an  involvement in an entire series of different projects.
I can state that I was one of the first consulting winemakers to firmly believe in native Tuscan and Italian grapes, putting myself to the test with Ciliegiolo and Caniolo (in addition to Sangiovese); today I must say that I am more convinced and interested in the dynamics of Variety-Territory-the Human Factor than in any one isolated aspect of my work.
Good wine is made all over the world, but the personality which a specific territory can give is something  unique. This is the challenge which still gives me the enthusiasm to test myself, to resolve the problems which  this question poses.
I was once asked what winemakers did and answered, jokingly, that our task was to ruin as little as possible the grapes which Nature put into our hands; today, I can repeat this phrase with even greater awareness and believe that a capable winemaker must be able to put into the bottle the largest possible percentage of the potential of the fruit he receives, and this is anything but easy to accomplish!
