In the 1980s, Edi Kante tunneled deep into the limestone hillsides of the Carso to form his cellar and to construct a vineyard, layer by layer, right over the top. The spectacular state of the art cellar is carved three stories down, each layer maintained at different temperatures based on the surrounding rock. The estate is situated in the heart of the Carso on hillsides facing the Gulf of Trieste along the Adriatic Sea. Here, the influence of the sea, protected by a barrier of limestone rock, and the continental climate allows for the optimum ripening of grapes with powerful aromatics and acidity. Described as a perfectionist and a resolute eccentric, Edi is also an innovator; he has devised a new 500ml bottle and its correspondent 1L “magnum” with a tight bottleneck fitted with narrow corks, allowing optimal permeability to improve the finishing and maturation process.
