The cellar is a place where the magic takes place, where all the perfume and vitality of the land, the microclimate and the grapes are drawn out and they are revealed in the wine to identify every single bottle.
In the cellar, the human intelligence challenges the hundreds of variables which arise to obtain a simple wine but always improving. That’s why the cellar environment must be both poetic and technical.
In this way, at Villa La Ripa, you can find both old vintage vats and barriques, the most modern equipment and the ancient rites; but what matters the most is the people’s passion and that’s why, during the harvest season, the owners are in direct contact with the fermenting process all day and night long, being anxious to follow the evolution of the musts transformed into wine.
''Wine is like a son - explains Doctor Luzzi - you can nurture it, prepare it, but it is extraordinary to follow its development, to observe its path, to see its well-known evolution''.
