The modern winery was built to expand the production of Palmento Costanzo. Unlike Palmento, it has a more regular cut and is illuminated by an entire wall consisting of large windows.
Thanks to the openings made at the top, in correspondence of the terrace overlooking the vineyards next to the millstone, the cellar is lit by five cones that convey light inside, limiting the need for electricity for lighting, only at the stages darkest of the day.
Even the cellar was built according to the principles of bioarchitecture. Its thick walls of lava stone guarantee an optimal thermal insulation that protects the wines from thermal changes, ensuring a cool temperature even in summer.
This feature, together with the thermolabirinto that runs it under the floor, allows us to optimize the environmental energy impact.
