This is a very well known winery. The estate's total area is 206 hectares, 45 of which planted. The only varietal planted is Malbec, clones are obtained from careful field selection. The vineyards have a density of over 4,000 plants per hectare, and were planted between 1996 and 1999, free of root stock and raised with the guyot method. At the heart of the property stands the 2,000 square meter cellar with its capacity for 16,000 hectolitres plus approximately 900 hectolitre capacity in small oak. Attilio Pagli and Alberto Antonini are the winemakers.
