Seracca and Memmo

The spurred cordon training system is used in the vineyards. Beneath a clayey topsoil of about 1 metre, the roots meet a wide band of tuff, the typical friable, porous white stone. In the driest periods, it acts as a water resource for the vines, giving wines their tangy minerality.

The work in the vineyards is supervised personally by Vitantonio Seracca Guerrieri, president of the estate, who for years has experimented with selections to enhance the native vines of Salento.
