Terre Bianche

Terre Bianche WineryThe Terre Bianche company owes its name to the particular land where it was founded in 1870, thanks to the will of Tommaso Rondelli to plant the first Rossese di Dolcecqua vineyards, an exclusive grape variety from the west of Liguria. Years later, between 1980 and 1998, the brothers Claudio and Paolo Rondelli, with Franco Laconi, are the protagonists of an important company expansion, which has allowed to increase the quantity but also the quality of the wines, as well as the beginning of the 'farmhouse. Now Filippo has replaced his father Claudio and together with the others he continues the management of the Terre Bianche company on the strand of increasing quality, always achieving important awards.

The vineyards are the largest assets and are divided into various areas, each with its own land and its microclimate. This allows each year to obtain wines consistent with the typical vines of the area, the Vermentino, the pigato and the rossese of dolceacqua. The vineyards are divided into the lands of Terre Bianche (blue clay and blue marl, 360-380m, south-east exposure, 30% gradient), Vigna Arcagna (Flysch di Ventimiglia, 380-450m, east exposure, 30% gradient), Scartozzoni (silty-sandy with clayey-marly lenses and conglomerates often outcropping, 360-450m, east, north-east, slope 50%) and finally the Monte Curto vineyard (Flysch di Ventimiglia, 380-430m, south exposure, slope 60 %).

The vinification is carried out respecting the plant and the wine, without making artificial changes to the wine but on the contrary enhancing the natural qualities with few but precise interventions, to obtain wines that are from time to time the expression of the terroir and the vintage.
