The challenge comes from here: trying to make a winery in Ripatransone that not only knows how to replicate the characteristics of excellence seen elsewhere,
but try to do better because “After all…” Marco says, “We do not lack anything to do well. We have generous territory; we also have tradition, indigenous varieties, and abundant expertise. Then we try to excel, to be us, an example of quality and style!”
The winery was born, splendid, and perfectly camouflaged in the hill where the estate stands: twenty-five hectares of vineyards and olive groves whose varieties are the autochthonous ones, such as Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Passerina, Pecorino, and Trebbiano.
“…Yes, a modern and super-technological cellar with zero environmental impact. A choice we chose so as not to spoil the panorama of these wonderful hills with an industrial warehouse”, says Marco Santori.
A Question of Passion
There have been few collaborators,
only those who have helped their parents in the nursery, who love it and have seen it grow. It is not a question of numbers, but a question of passion, quality, and heart.
““When I decided to ask an oenologist for advice, I had no doubt about the person to whom I could entrust my cellar. The agreement that ensued was immediate.
I already knew Pierluigi, both being from Grottammare. Yet as soon as we started collaborating, I immediately recognized his excellent qualities and the great passion he has for his work, further increasing the admiration I already felt towards him.
He is a great professional from whom I can learn a lot and it is a real privilege to work alongside him. Together we are doing a meticulous job on each indigenous grape variety tracing the style of Tenuta Santori wines.
