Today the beautifully restored Masseria covers an area of 33.000sqm, 3750 of which include offices, a reception area, vinification, storage and ageing cellars.
The vineyards cover a total area of 33 hectares, mainly cultivated with native alberello trained vines, with three two-bud spurs, at a high density planting (5120 plants per hectare).
All wines are produced in the large cellar built in a light coloured stone, carparo, similar to the local pietra leccese.
The total capacity of the cellar is of approximately 10,000 hectoliters, divided between steel vats and about 400 French oak barriques.
