Nunc est bibendum, nunc pede libero pulsanda tellus

Now we must drink; now we must dance for joy

Criseo is an artisan wine, a field-blend from single vineyard Campo Bianco. The field-blend is the oldest way for the wine production, usual in pre-philloxera period. A extraordinary complexity origines from the sinergy of different grapes cultived in the same vineyard and vinified all together. Our modern approach is not random, but every step is carefully thought out.

Criseo is a complex and elegant white wine, who can have a medium-long life. Best storage is in a dark and fresh place, in a lying down bottle. We suggest to serve it at about 14°C (53-54°F), and to wait for some time after uncorking. It should be tasted calmly, feeling how it changes in the glass as it oxygenates. Best pairing is with intense flavor food fish-based, white meat, vegetables, mushrooms, medium ripening cheeses.


Campo Bianco is among the hills of Bolgheri, the fresher area of the territory, in a little valley with exposition East-West. The climate is Mediterranean, tempered by the sea breeze, with a broad day-night temperature differentials on summer. The soil is deep, fine sandy-clayey, medium/rich in pebbles. It hosts 5 white varieties: Vermentino (70%) , Verdicchio, Fiano, Petit Manseng, Manzoni bianco.

PRODUCTION: The vineyard Campo Bianco is harvested in one step and the grapes are co-fermented, as per tradition. They are harvested in an optimal moment of ripeness for the synergy of the different varieties, in the coolest hours of the morning. The selected and de-stemmed grapes are gently pressed and the must is cleaned by spontaneous precipitation, leaving it overnight with the cool temperature of the cellar. After fermentation, it is aged on the lees for about 1 year, in stainless steel tanks, with frequent mixing. After that, it remains about one year in the bottle.

VINTAGE 2021: it was an excellent year, very regular, except for a very dry summer. However, the intense rainfall during the winter period perfectly supported the vines throughout the maturation, showing no signs of water stress. For the rest, the summer was characterised by excellent ventilation and average temperatures, except for a few brief periods of intense heat. Ripening was very slow and regular. We harvested the Campo Bianco later than usual, on 21 September. Criseo 2021 is a bright yellow wine, intense but very pleasant and balanced, savoury, with classic notes of grapefruit, sage, hawthorn and exotic fruit. Aging on the lees gives rise to complex hints of beeswax, pastry, bread crust and yeast, saffron, as well as a slight mineral note of hydrocarbons, which will grow with further evolution.
