The grapes for Bagnadore Barone Pizzini come from a single vineyard where the more than twenty-year-old vines enjoy the benefits of a climate mitigated by the surrounding woods. Healthy temperature variation between day and night gives the site rich biodiversity. This reserve wine is made only in small quantities and only in top vintages. Its production is held to the highest quality standards.
Bagnadore is an “organic wine”, the result of the choice towards processing methods, in the countryside and in the cellar, aimed at guaranteeing the maximum representation of the territory. In the vineyard only substances of natural origin are used. Biodiversity is also encouraged to allow for a balance between all forms of life, plant and animal.
