Daniele Proietti commands the seven hectares of parcels located in the town of Piglio, mostly on important cru sites in the appellation of Cesanese del Piglio DOCG and inherited from his family over the years. Daniele and his cousin moved towards more natural farming methods starting in the 1980s with organic agriculture and later on, along with his cousin, delved into biodynamic principles, Fukuoka’s methods and homeopathic methods of agriculture. Many of the vines are from varietals that are indigenous to the area and average around 80 years or more. They’ve eschewed even treatments like sulfur and copper and instead use natural resistance methods that they produce themselves. The estate grows Cesanese along with other ancient varietals like Passerina, Bellone, Ottonese, Nostrano and Fosco Peloso.
Their focus is to craft wines with expression, wines that convey a deep message that is immediately known to the taster.
