ARNALDO POMODORO’S CARAPACE

The Carapace is the result of the Lunelli family’s dream of having a winery that is also a treasure chest for wine. From the Lunellis’ long-standing friendship with Arnaldo Pomodoro and their previous collaboration  sprang the idea of suggesting that he should design the winery. The result is an absolutely unique work of art: the first sculpture in the world in which it is possible to live and work; a place in which art and nature, sculpture and wine intermingle, thus highlighting the exceptional nature both of the container and its contents.
Entering the “Carapace” means penetrating into one of Pomodoro’s sculptures, and one is aware right away of his artistic alphabet, which is immediately recognizable in the internal vault. It is a winery that offers great emotions, as indeed was the case for its designer, Arnaldo Pomodoro. He himself describes the fact: “For the first time in my life I felt the excitement of being able to walk, talk and drink inside one of my own works”.
The “Carapace”, a shape that was reminiscent of a tortoise, a symbol of stability and longevity, offers itself to one’s gaze as a large copper-covered dome, engraved with fissures that remind one of the furrows in the earth that surrounds it. A sculpted element in the form of a red dart plunging into the soil highlights the work’s place in the landscape.
 
We organize guided tours and tastings every day, by reservation lasting about one hour: we will guide you inside the winery explaining you the history of the Lunelli Family, the project of the Carapace, the aging of our wines into the Barricaia and how our technical area works.
