The story of Livio

Livio Seganfreddo was born in Colceresa, a territory renowned for the production of DOC wines, in a family with a peasant tradition dedicated to agriculture.
His childhood, spent in these enchanting hills, is marked by the love for his land. This bond with his roots remains strong even after emigrating to Canada in the late sixties, when he decided to follow the footsteps of his siblings out of necessity. Back in Italy, he returned to his youthful passions, carrying on with viticulture and wine production. A path that now, after his death, is carried on with passion and love by his family.

The winery

The winery Al Monte di Livio is located in Colceresa, Vicenza, overlooking the hills of Breganze, an area renowned for its viticultural vocation. The vineyard surface covers 10 hectars and the grapes are homegrown. This is where the passion for the production of wines emboding the history and the flavours of this territory originated. Here, following Livio’s values and teachings, the second generation of the Seganfreddo family carries on the work in the name of tradition and innovation.

The Family

Maria, Alberto and Gloria took over the reins of the company and dedicated themselves to the development of the winery, by investing in its growth, refining and improving the production quality, as well as allocating resources for research and development activities in the enological sector, in order to operate effectively in the winemaking market.

Land and territory

The soils are characterized by the presence of volcanic rocks both sedimentary and with basic chemism. The soil structure is of medium texture with some medium fine areas and a moderately rapid drainage capability. The soil permeability is medium-high with low limestone content (<5%) and common to low skeleton content (5-15%).

The soil goes from deep to less deep, with fine texture, gravelly or medium poor skeleton, neutral and non-calcareous reaction, with good to medium drainage.
The vineyards are between 20 and 30 years old with 1900/2000 strains per hectare, whereas the new plantings have 3500/4000 strains per hectare.

The vines are cultivated according to Guyot and double Guyot methods. Each vineyard has its own characteristics in terms of exposure, altitude and soil composition which make it unique.
These are the optimal characteristics for the generous and selected Al Monte di Livio wine production.
