Producer Profile - Pialli
The Pialli family has been producing wines since the 1960s. Both grandparents Silvio Tognetti (CìoBacaro) and Gregorio Pialli owned small vineyards and each made and sold their own wine. Typical productions, at that time, were Tocai Rosso and Garganega. In 1999 both grandparents stopped their activities and in 2001 the new generation began the transformation of the company by combining the two properties into a single winery, focusing exclusively on the vinification of Tocai Rosso di Barbarano. The vineyards were immediately converted to organic. Today the company has 4.5 hectares of vineyards for a total annual production ranging from 13,000 to 20,000 depending on the vintage. It is now led by Alessandro Pialli, both in the vineyard and in the cellar.
The company and the vineyards are located on the east side of the Berici Hills, in the old cliff where the sea in ancient times carved out slopes and vertical walls. The soils in this area are very particular, varying from the classic clayey red soils typical for the Berici hills to become drastically calcareous with white and pink flakes. Today Pialli works 7 plots with different terrains and different exposures. After many years of testing and experimentation they have come to produce 4 types of Tai Rosso, each of which conveys the characteristics of its own terroir.
