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!
