About Ellena Giuseppe

Agricola Ellena Giuseppe is located in the prized commune of ‘La Morra’. The property is 15 hectares with five under vine and eight hectares of hazelnuts. From 1966 through the mid-2000s the Ellenas sold fruit to local co-ops and that all changed with the changing of the guard and young Mateo taking over the property with his father in 2009.

Today, three generations work side by side weaving tradition and innovation. Mateo worked for both Elio Altare of La Morra and Giacoma Bologna of Rocchetta Tanaro bringing a bit of style from both of these producers fusing modernity with classic.

The viticulture is quite traditional and was the first thing Mateo went to work on. They converted the vineyard to organic viticulture and low yields were obtained with multiple shoot thinnings. In the cellar, everything is vinified the way it ‘should be.’ The younger wines are given soft handling with higher temperature ferments and shorter time in oak if it sees wood at all. The Baroli are macerated for 60+ days on the skins and held traditionally in botti with a bit of barrique. Primary and malolactic ferments are carried out with indigenous yeasts and the rackings are limited in order to lessen the use of sulfur dioxide.
