So you've made your own vines? In essence a "Scavino Clone"? What is "marze from massal" and how is this accomplished?
Essentially that's right Giovanni. Marze are "pieces of shoots, each with 2-4 buds" from old vines that we have selected and pruned in the winter and then grafted onto our own existing rootstock. We have made our own plants.
Wow, that is amazing!
I love that. I love that answer. It transcends so many different aspects of what goes into making great wine. Nature, tradition, passion, art.
E vero, Giovanni!

Working alongside your sister cannot always be easy. How is that? Is there ever any sibling rivalry?
That's right. It's a fun job!
