Vineyards

Our estate extends in total for approximately 45 hectares. Twenty-five hectares are cultivated as vineyards, and the rest divided between woods and olive grove.

The vine varieties cultivated are for the most part natives like Sangiovese (leader of the Tuscan viticulture  and the variety present in greatest numbers – about 70% of the planted area), Colorino and Montepulciano, then completed by international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Chardonnay and Viognier.

The training systems that we use are spurred cordon and Guyot that we recently re-introduced for new plants. The planting density varies from 4,630 plants/hectare for the new plants to 3,000 plants/hectare for vineyards older.

The morphology of the land on which the wines are growing has a medium textured soil with layers of loam, volcanic tuff, and clay, and the position halfway up a hill, together with optimal microclimatic conditions, is ideal for ripening grapes.Especially during the growing season we find significant differences in temperature between day and night ideal for the development and maintenance of coloring and aromatic substances.
