Roccolo Grassi enterprise is a family-run business with an ambitious project: Marco, Francesca and dad Bruno’s aim is to obtain great grapes and produce few bottles of high quality wine every year; for this reason, the number of bottles produced varies annually, depending on the quality of the year. Roccolo Grassi enterprise produces only wines with character, personality, easy identifiable in the territory and in the style. Roccoli Grassi wines evolve and mature through the aging in bottle. For this reason, most of the work is carried out in the vineyard, trying to limit the yield of each vine, making the grapes ripen well and being very careful in preserving in the cellars the raw material obtained. These practices convert into a careful viticulture that pays specific attention to the environment.
