Pratolungo

The name Pratolungo comes from the shape of the vineyard near the winery.

The soil is of mixed consistency, with deep blue calcareous marl at a depth of about one metre from the surface. The altitude of this vineyard is 240 to 260 metres above sea level, set within a natural amphitheatre exposed towards south-west. These conditions enable the vines to ripen steadily, giving the Pinot Noir produced there a natural elegance and freshness.


The vines are planted in rows using the Guyot training system, with a planting arrangement of 2.40 X 0.80 metres. The soils are tended with machines and manual labour. No herbicides or irrigation systems are used. The bunches of Pinot Noir are picked by hand and placed in 20 kg crates to preserve their quality.
