The territories called “Ronchiel” ,“Mandolari”, “Bosco”, “Carpanè” “La costa”, and “Tondin” as well as other smaller lots (all facing the south-east) have vines which are between 9 and 40 years old, aligning the plants in traditional rows and applying the pergola trentina (single or double) cultivation method, which permits a circa 3,000-plant-per-hectar density

Here under the brand Scriani, Stefano Cottini wanted to give identity to a long family tradition in the trade of wine; together with his wife Mariangela, his father Silvano and the grandfather Pio.

A passion that he loves to share by opening the doors of the cellar (every day of the week by reservation) for tastings and visits to vineyards, situated on a beautiful hill called Monte S. Urbano to the east and La Costa to the west.
