Duca di Salaparuta combines the expertise of its agronomists with laboratory operations, using latest generation technologies to monitor the health of its vines and of the soil in every phase of the production cycle, thus reducing problems and favouring timely interventions when needed. Every day a Duca di Salaparuta agronomist sets out from the Winery and travels around the island in order to follow the different stages of fruit as it ripens, and to take samples both from the company’s vineyards and those of its suppliers, for laboratory analysis. As well as analysing micro-elements in the soil, the vine’s leaves are also checked, to ensure that the plant is correctly assimilating the substances present in the soil. Frequent sample checking allows us to also verify the presence of any kind of unwanted substances, both in our own vineyards and in those of the outsourced Corvo grape suppliers. This benefits the maintenance of a correct environmental balance, while also protecting the nature of both the soils and the vines.
