At the beginning of the last century, the Petricci family of San Lorenzo planted their first vineyards and they then subsequently acquired considerable experience in wine growing experience which has enabled Pietro Marilena and their sons to produce excellent wines today. They were greatly helped in this by the expet advice and assistance of a local oenologist, Marco Stefanini. This lovingly run farm’s principal crops today are, in fact, grapes and olives. The farm extends over some 22 hectares and is situated at 100 metres above sea-level. No irrigation is used and the vines are trained using the “cordone speronato” technique. There are some 4800 plants per hectar.
