The vineyards are located in the hills of Northwest Sardinia, overlooking the island of Asinara. The wines gain a distinct flavour from the a strong, cold wind known as the mistral that blows from the coast and possesses a rich saltiness. Additionally, the winds allow them to pursue sustainability objectives as the mistral dries rain and humidity from the leaves and fruit faster, thus reducing the growth of fungi that are harmful to the vine.
The soil is clayey limestone and the vines are grown without irrigation. The plants have met their water needs in a natural way, even during dry periods. The vineyard land was occupied by the sea in ancient times and this likely contributes to the rich environment, as well as the numerous fossils that are found on the land.
