Societa Agricola Rabasco
Iole inherited her family estate, with vineyards and olive groves - all of which have never been treated with chemical fertiliser or pesticide. Farming is now entirely organic. The majority of her vines are Montepulciano, with the remainder the other central Italian stalwart Trebbiano. The vines are trained in the traditional tendone-style pergola, and all the work is done by hand. She intentionally keeps her yields low. She prefers her wines to have acidity and freshness rather than power and extraction.
