When he was very young he moved from Puglia (Italy) to Lugano. After a brief period of time he became friends with Delio and Ivo, who shared the passion for winemaking. For a few years he helped the two men in his free time. Finally he decided to make it his profession. He’s an exceptional fisher and is known in the whole canton as the spazzalago, which means lake cleaner. For years now he has been responsible for the vineyards and knows every Cantina Monti’s secret, that he helped founding.
