Icardi’s philosophy:

“Today, as well as in the past, we still believe that the wine production happens in the vineyard more than in the cellar.
We deeply respect the cycle of the seasons and the rhythms of nature and for this reason we naturally follow the vineyards growing cycles and let flowers and plants grow between our grape rows.

We do not use nitrogen fertilisers but allow plants to naturally fix the nitrogen in the soil. We do not employ either herbicides or pesticides .

We improve the fertility of our soil through green manure.

We believe in thinning our vineyards, leaving behind only the best grapes, even when that means reducing our final production.

We allow shoots to grow freely without forcing them into place.

We carry out our work in full respect and protection of the environment we live in and we do that keeping hectares of uncultivated woods to foster animal and plant biodiversity.

We make genuine wines, as we are genuine people. We are proud farmers who have stayed true to their old traditions, keeping a strong bond with the soil.”
