The archetype is a company located in Castellaneta, at the foot of the Bari Murgia, not far from Altamura. Founded by Francesco Valentino Dibenedetto, a farmer from birth, who later also became an agronomist. The conversion of the company to organic farming began in the 1980s and then, in 2000, to biodynamic practices. After a few years he realizes that there is still something that prevents the return to the archetypal situation of the soil, of the ecosystem, and therefore also of the vineyard. Inspired by the non-interventionist practices of Masanobu Fukuoka, in which the synergies between all the rings of the ecosystem are triggered, we move on to synergistic agriculture, for which, among other things, plowing is no longer practiced. He embarks on this new adventure together with his wife Anna Maria and his four children: Carlo Nazareno, Domenico, Andrea and Maria Clelia. 50 hectares of land are cultivated, of which 30 are intended for vineyards. In these precise climatic conditions, it is possible to enhance the valuable property grapes without the use of synthetic chemistry, by cultivating native vines such as Primitivo, Aglianico, Negroamaro, Fiano and Greco and rediscovering forgotten vines such as Maresco, Marchione and Susumaniello. In the cellar, built entirely of tuff, the primary objective is to leave the taste, aroma and color of the fruit unchanged; fermentation takes place exclusively by means of indigenous yeasts and filtrations do not take place. The result is synergistic and pure wines.
