Ep. 727 Vittorio Moretti Gita Scolastica Sardegna 4 Of 4 | #everybodyneedsabitofscienza


Episode 727 Professore Attilio and Stevie Kim talk with Vittorio Moretti during their time in Sardinia, the Gita Scolastica…the Professore and Moretti have been friends for over 40 years… So get set for a little bit of everything! in this week’s episode of #everybodyneedsabitofscienza!

More about today’s guest:
In little more than 40 years, Vittorio Moretti, one of the great lords of Italian wine, starting from that Franciacorta of which he can be considered one of the noble fathers, has built one of the most important groups of Italian wine. A small but very prestigious empire between Lombardy, Tuscany and Sardinia, a reality with 65 million euros of turnover, 8.5 million bottles produced, 548 employees, and 1,154 hectares of vineyards divided into six wineries, built from scratch or acquired: from Bellavista to Contadi Castaldi, in Franciacorta, from Petra in Suvereto, Acquagiusta Tenuta La Badiola in Maremma and Teruzzi in San Gimignano, and Sella & Mosca in Sardinia. And now, at the top of that kingdom, it’s time for a succession, with Vittorio Moretti (who remains, however, president of Holding Terra Moretti, engaged in construction and hospitality of the highest level, with realities such as L’Albereta in Franciacorta and L’Andana in Maremma, ed.), who has decided to entrust the scepter of the Terra Moretti Vino group to his daughter Francesca, second-born, oenologist and active in the wine sector since 1997, and CEO since 2016. Who will have at her side one of the most experienced managers of Italian wine, Massimo Tuzzi.

If you want to learn more about the Professore:
The one who checks all the facts and regulates when we mistakenly type “Verdicchio” in place of “Vermentino.” Attilio Scienza is a full professor at the University of Milan in the Department of Agricultural and Food Sciences where he teaches courses on genetic improvements to the vine; he also teaches Viticulture in the Master’s program of the University of Turin in Asti. He has been the lead for many national research projects in the field of physiology, agricultural techniques, and vine genetics. He was recently awarded the prestigious Civilta’ del Vino Prize, presented by Fondazione Masi. As the author of over 350 publications on vine and viticulture in national and international journals, you can bet he knows his stuff!
