The Arcari + Danesi was born in 2006 from an idea matured 10 years earlier by Giovanni Arcari and Nico Danesi. Friends since childhood, Giovanni and Nico, have always worked in the world of wine, from the dealer's first, as an oenologist to the latter, both startuppers of winemaking realities.
The cellar has always been their dream that finally came true.
THE CELLAR AND THE MONTORFANO
The winery is located in the municipality of Coccaglio, on top of Montorfano, the hill that borders, to the south, the land of Franciacorta. The company's spaces are completely excavated inside the hill and are entirely built with the rock extracted during the excavations. These are very particular rocks, created by millenarian sediments, which are only found in this area of Franciacorta. The Montorfano, an area of more ancient and tectonic origin than the other Franciacorta hills of morainic origin, has a ferrous and red soil that typifies wines with a lot of minerality. The outer square and the terraced vineyards that surround the winery face south, towards the Pianura Padana, a small patch of land, which on clear days lets you easily see the Apennines.
