The Rio Rosso Vegetable Garden
Natural delights

Hortus Conclusus is a place that encloses fruit trees, fragrant flowers, everything is about order and harmony...

On the hillside, south west of the Rio Rosso Farm, a network of countryside paths allows to cross the Almond grove with two later varieties (Prunus Dulcis Soleta and Lauranne) and a plantation of Goji (Lycium barbarum) in slender spindle system. To the east, a multi centenary olive tree stands on top of the terraces intended for the cultivation of aromatic and healing herbs. At the foot of the slope, a multitude of routes offer the possibility to observe different species of unusual fruits (Asimina (pawpaw), Panachè Fig, Red Love Apple), vertical trellis of table grapes and many varieties of forgotten fruits as Jujubes or Plumcots or ancient varieties of Apple trees, Pear trees, (some also dating back to the 18th century - 'Curato' variety-1760).

A collection of minor Fruits, the elder grove and a Hazel orchard complete the cultivable area before the untouched woodland area, typical of our hills.
