About MAURO DROCCO:
Third generation Mauro Drocco makes wine in Diano D'Alba, at the heart of Langhe. The vineyards are located on the hills in the villages of Diano D'Alba, La Morra and Grinzane Cavou. Gentle slopes, vineyards laid out in neat patterns, a brightly-colored landscape, a history of hard work and resolve in a land worked by generations of farmers with courage and patience.
The position of the vineyards facing the south-east and the clayey-calcareous soils with fossil marl provide excellent conditions for wines of great structure.
We are a family business, we carry out all the work ourselves and we are responsible for the entire chain, from the vineyard to bottling. We work in close contact with the land, respecting its properties , our aim has long been to respect nature and everything we use must be of natural origin. All our wines are organically farmed. Our wines reflect our philosophy of life.
We practice long fermentations with the native yeasts of the Estate of at least 15 days, sometimes lasting for up to a month, punching the cap down to completely submerge the skins in the liquid (the old traditional method).
We age the wine in large casks of French oak 25 hl or in barrels (2nd - 3rd fill). We prefer to use large casks so that the wood does not cover the floral and fruity aromas that emerge more strongly in organic farming
