Soils at dacapo are a mix of tufo and sandy clay. The vines are spread across four distinct parcels. Barbera is grown in Agliano Terme (around the cellar) Grignolino in a separate parcel (Valle Rotonda) also in Agliano Terme, Ruche in a vineyard called Majoli in Castagnole Monferrato, and Pinot and Nebbiolo in a distinct spot in Castagnole. The small team at these farms cluster thin in summer to optimize ripeness, use ladybugs and other forms of natural pest control, and pick entirely by hand into small baskets.
