Knowledge, experience, research, willpower and high quality are the cornerstones of Poggio alla Meta, an organic and biodynamic winery founded and managed by prof. Mariano Nicòtina. The winery acts with rigor and scientific methods, always in accordance with the dictates of eco-friendly viticulture, always trying to propose what nature creates in the simplest (possible) way.
Poggio alla Meta is located in lower Lazio on the border with the National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise, surrounded by Monti della Meta, hence the company name.
The cellar was designed with advanced methodologies that exploit the cold and the force of gravity, allowing for gravity processing and limiting the use of mechanical pumps for lifting the masses. The use of wood is limited to the maximum and is applied only to those wines to which greater oxygenation is desired and which, due to their structure, are suitable for slow evolution.
