PRIMO, ALESSIO, ISABELLA, ANNAMARIA, LORENZO AND ALLEGRA: IDEAS, PASSION, CHALLENGES Annamaria Banelli and her husband Primo always believed in the project for the Estate. With hard work and tenacity, they worked on this challenge, together with their children, Alessio and Isabella. With the arrival of Allegra, we are now in the fourth generation of a story that began in 1946 and we are already writing its future! Yes, because today, that story is about 42 hectares of vineyards and 6000 olive trees, selected from among the best quality, remunerative varieties.
LIKE IN THE PAST... This is a business that continues to develop, involving the “big family” of all of the workers on the estate who, like in the past, have rediscovered their relationship with nature and the land.
