Tenuta l'Impostino conversion to organic

Tenuta l’Impostino, this year, started the conversion to organic adhering to the international protocol of productions through the organic method which will involves both field and cellar activities. This choice is the result of all a series of initiatives aimed to limit the environmental impact and promote the protection of an exclusive territory. This choice involves all our employees which share a common sense of respect and awareness for the territory. Although from a formal point of view our first organic harvest will be in 2018, as of now, it is excluded from our activities any synthetized substance.

Our grapes and wines are thus only safeguarded by organic products, i.e. as founded in nature. To protect the Peronospora we use copper in the form of hydroxide, sulfate or neutralized with lime, in very low quantities, defined by international regulations on organic products. Against powdery mildew we use powdered natural sulfur or solubilized in water. Insects and other parasites are eventually obstructed with natural Pyrethrum.

However the protection from diseases is entrusted to the proper management of buds and leaves to foster natural balances and careful monitoring the biodiversity in which natural antagonist are our allies. Fertilization is entrusted to organic compost which fosters the self-defence capability of the plant and to periodic green manures with weed able to enrich the soil with organic substance.
