Climbing the hill towards Sorbo Serpico, you enter a magical world, among unexpected water places, spice gardens and blooming rose gardens.
The biggest surprise, however, is inside the cellar: the long barrel room that houses the red wines.
The intent is to go beyond the concept of the cellar, turning it into a forum, a place for meeting, comparison, knowledge, meditation, a laboratory of ideas and culture, a place of welcome and refreshment. The project was attended by world-class professionals: the Japanese architect Hikaru Mori had the difficult task of giving architectural unity to the pre-existing structures, which have developed over time. Massimo and Lella Vignelli, symbols of Italian design in the world and "authors" of the company's labels, designed the furnishings and interiors.
