In the following years the company grew and developed under the guidance of Fausto and Marisa Calatroni: having arrived at the third generation of winemakers, the company today combines the experience of tradition with the modern enological and agronomic techniques that the young brothers Cristian ( 37 years) and Stefano (32 years) have brought with professionalism and passion. The continuous technical improvements and the qualitative progresses have allowed the full valorization of the grapes of the vineyards of property, sites in the commune of Montecalvo Versiggia to an altitude comprised between 180 and 320 m.s.m.m., in an area particularly suited for the cultivation of the pinot noir The Oltrepò Pavese, with its 4100 hectares, is the third area planted with vines in the world for the production of pinot noir.
