The estate covers approximately 90 hectares, 29 of which are specialised vineyards. Sangiovese (90%), Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot (10%) grapes are the basis of the wines.
The production areas are internal to the areas of the historic Chianti Classico and to that of the Chianti Colli Senesi. The soils are composed of mixed clayey sands, with a good stony skeleton and lie at an altitude between 230 and 380 meters. s.l.m. The exposure and the different geographical positions of our vine- yards is superb and reflects the quality and the different peculiarities of our products.
The vineyards have a variable density per hectare and range from 3000 plants / Ha to a maximum of 6600 plants / Ha. The vineyards are spurred by cordon and simple Guyot. This allows the company to produce high quality production performances. The bottled product is always the result of the best Company selection.
“Why did we choose the Biological way?
The earth is a wonderful planet, which requires a lot of care and attention. We need small gestures and a lot of sensitivity, to pre- serve it. Today, many years after the beginning, we have managed to standardise procedures and interventions and much has become simpler, manageable and finally satisfying. We only treat our land with natural products: copper, sulfur, clay, algae and we see that the fertility processes are much more present and active. Near the company vineyards, we have allowed the installation of some beehives and the result in general terms was simply extraordinary: everything seems to flourish with greater vigor, everything seems to have a new vegetative harmony, in an environment richer in life in every shape.”
