Cristiano Guttarolo's vineyards are far away from the palins which often produce hot, flabby wines, on a plateau of limestone some 400 metres above sea level. It's a unique climate that has cool daytime temperatures than usual thanks to a strong breeze from the sea. This combined with the elevation means the grapes ripen slowly and fully with freshness and finesse. The wines a classic in Pugliese style with wild, sun-drenched fruit but has a lovely balance and minerality that is often missed in the region.
