La Distesa

Corrado Dottori e Valeria Bochi

Valeria Bochi and Corrado Dottori left Milan in 1999 to take up the winemaking tradition of their paternal family in the enchanted nest of San Michele, rich in biodiversity, with various species of trees, including olive trees, converting the estate to organic farming and choosing more natural forms of winemaking, in tune with the rhythm of expression of each cultivated plot. The 8.5 hectares of vineyards are planted in one of Cupramontana’s historic crus, called San Michele, which has a history of over 1000 years of cultivation, started by the Camaldolesi monks next to the San Michele Church. The limestone marl soils originating from the lower Pliocene (5 billion years ago), combined with the good ventilation provided by the altitude of between 300 and 500 metres on the slopes at the foot of the Apennines and the maritime influence of the Adriatic create good ripening conditions, without excess humidity to give structured and powerful wines in hot weather years and more salty and marine in cooler years. Verdicchio is the main grape variety that finds its best expression in this terroir. It is accompanied by Trebbiano, Malvasia and Pecorino in white and Sangiovese, Montepulciano and Cabernet-Sauvignon in red. For them, wine is a vehicle for expressing the territory, peasant solidarity and the feelings that inhabit them during a year of cultivation. Involved in actions to support migrants and boost the collective promotion of the region, wine becomes a tool for unity and nurturing the dream of a more harmonious society.
