“Gardetta” is a small, ancient building still belonging to our family that is very dear to me for all the memories it calls back to my mind. We’ve always named it after its first owners, the Gardetta lords, who later donated it to the Franciscan friars. During the last century, my grandparents used its rooms to wilt the grapes in special crates. This name has always been connected to our history… now it identifies one of our most successful wines”.
