Environment


The companys vineyards are situated at an altitude of 450-500 meters a.s.l., on the slopes of the Umbrian hills going down towards the Valdichiana area.

At the beginning of the 1990s, the necessary chemical and physical soil analyses were carried out to identify different soil types of the territory in order to make the correct choice of rootstocks, depending on the type of soil.

The particular meteorological and climatic location of this area, characterized by rainy, cold winters and dry, hot summers, permits the correct maturation of grapes, which in the last few years was definitely earlier than usual.

The grape harvest takes place from August to September; grapes are picked by hand, transported to the wine cellar and immediately processed.
