San Carlo

Sebino IGT

In San Carlo viticultural records stretch back to the 1400s. The humble little church dedicated to San Carlo Borromeo still watches over the land, the people, and their sacred rituals. San Carlo was created to celebrate this still untouched world and all the places that represent culture and memory.

San Carlo 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.

Nel ricordo di una fisarmonica e di un ballo sull'aia o di un lento, saporoso bicchier di vino dopo il lavoro nei campi o di un'allegra gita in compagnia, quando San Carlo era un piccolo mondo a sé stante, uno spazio dell'evasione e dell'avventura...
