Fratelli Martini Secondo Luigi has always believed and invested in Italy’s oenological heritage and the socioeconomic fabric of that surrounds it and from which it draws its success. Preserving the land, cultivating the historical vineyards with the utmost respect and supporting the agricultural work in the fullest respect of the continuity of traditions are belief tenets that have always provided for great results. Harmony with nature and the positive development of the land and its people is of imperative importance.

The Martini Family has always loved - and done its utmost to preserve - the perfect designs of the vineyards that man has sculpted upon the soft hills of Langa, which has been recognised in 2014 as a World Heritage Site by Unesco with the “Vineyard Landscapes of Langa and Roero” denomination. The hills inspire and incite to go beyond their soft crests facing on the infinite, and Fratelli Martini cannot resist this call.

We import a variety of Fratelli Martini wines across three ranges: Canti, Casa Sant Orsola, Marchesini and Villa Garducci depending on the origin, price point and certifications.

The remaining de-stemmed grapes are pressed and placed in stainless steel tanks to begin fermentation, which lasts 3-4 days. Fermentation continues, without the grape skins, in stainless steel (16-18 °C).
