- The nature of a wine
and its success are decided by many elements that we can visualize as the tiles of a mosaic. Every molecule of the wine
is a tile of the mosaic, just like, every decision made by the man that chooses in which way to direct the grapevine. After all this, a precise vinification process and the choice of the location for the vineyards and the bottling must be undertaken with the same care.
The corporate philosophy of Pratum Coller can be summarized in a sentence “driving without forcing”. The vineyard has to be accompanied in its growth and ripening of the grapes, to help it give us what we want: whole, truthful and savory grapes. This fundamental idea is also true for the pruning. “It is not about pruning to only satisfy the plant,– underlines Marco Tonni, agronomist that cooperates with Pratum Coller – but pruning to help the plant produce according to our needs. The shape of every plant has to be preserved as we planned it, and the same has to be for the position of the leaves to ensure the ripening and the right placement of the bunches and the longevity of the vineyard”.
