Marco Minnucci began his winemaking career in Costigliole in 2010 and after meeting his future partners, opened the farm Cascina San Michele in 2015.

The farm’s vineyards are all situated within the council area of Costigliole d’Asti between Langa and Monferrato and currently cultivate the Barbera, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo, Brachetto, Bonarda and other white varieties of grape.

Our vineyards are maintained in accordance with a strictly organic approach, without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides and other products that might modify the normal plant cycle of the vines.

The aim is to avoid interfering excessively with the development of the vines, but rather enable them to express themselves in the best possible way in every single year’s production and to maintain a healthy yield.

When making our wine we do not add any type of yeast to encourage fermentation and we use no substance that could modify the characteristics of the wine: the sulphur dioxide, at the moment of bottling, is normally below half of the legal limit. Our wines are not filtered.

The grapes come from vines with different facing slopes and different soils. The alcoholic fermentation usually lasts between 20 and 30 days and takes place in stainless steel casks.

Throughout this stage and according to necessity, the wine is pumped over once or twice each day, then decanted as necessary. The wine, however, remains in steel containers until it is bottled and is neither purified nor filtered.
