Modern architecture integrated with nature and...awarded!
An area of 13 hectares, a 500-metre glass façade and a stunning wave-shaped roof; plus a winemaking cellar and a bottling cellar, offices, a commercial area and space dedicated to winery visits and events (with an auditorium and exhibition area): the Cittadella del Vino (Citadel of Wine) is not only the largest industrial complex dedicated to wine in Europe, but above all a place for meeting and sharing, built in symbiosis with nature. This is quality architecture by Alberto Cecchetto, an internationally renowned lecturer and architect, who has been awarded prizes and exhibited in international exhibitions several times.
The barrique cellar: where our wines rest
The barrique cellar is the place where time shapes elegant, fragrant wines in harmony with the Trentino terroir. Here, maturation in the noble French oak wood and in ideal conditions for temperature and humidity guarantees a constant evolution of the aromas and structure of both red and white wines. On the one hand, the selection of the wood, the long maturation of the staves and the delicate toasting of the wooden containers allow us to respect the territoriality of our wines; on the other hand, the use of different types of containers (225l barrique, 500l tonneaux, 50, 68, 75hl barrels) is at the basis of the perfect sensory balance between the aromas of our wines and those aromatic notes of the woody essences.
Our winery is a genuine work of restitution to the territory. Founded in 1993, with the purchase of the land and the start of the industrial redevelopment project of the former Samarec area in the Piana Rotaliana, it was completed in 2010, with the construction of an innovative bottling facility and a new wine cellar. Conceived from the outset with bio-architectural and energy-efficient criteria, the Cittadella del Vino (Citadel of Wine), thanks to its striking "wave" roof, echoes the pattern of the vineyards cultivated using the Trentino pergola system and harmoniously blends into its surroundings.
