Customizable amphorae in cocciopesto
Each customer is unique to us. That’s why you can customize your amphora in colours and accessories, also by applying the company logo or emblem.
In 2014 we started the production of cocciopesto wine vessels, a unique product of its kind in the world.
Today we produce hundreds of wine amphorae in different sizes, from 500 litres to 25 hectolitres.
The company name has a triple meaning.
The protagonist, the turtle, is slow, as the process of refining and aging of the wine. Her carapace is hard, resistant and solid, like the cocciopesto. And our turtle is drunk, because it contains the wine!
This explains the origin of our name.
The ovoid shape has a very specific purpose. It confers strength and mechanical resistance such that the amphorae for wine do not need any metal armour. Furthermore, the ovoid shape has the advantage of triggering natural convective motions, a positive phenomenon that favours the extraction process.
Cocciopesto DT is a new material, obtained from waste materials recovered from other processes (for example, the marble dust resulting from cuts on the slabs). Characterized by a high thermal inertia and excellent permeability, Cocciopesto DT is perfect for all stages, from vinification to aging.
The production process for making the amphorae does not require any cooking in the oven, but only a slow drying in the air.
We can define the Drunk Turtle amphorae in Cocciopesto DT the perfect combination of tradition and innovation.
