Located in the township of Grosseto, the property extends over a total of 70 ha, of which 32 are planted with Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante, Vermentino, CabernetFranc, Viognier, Syrah and other local varieties of ancient origin, currently being developed experimentally.
The entire surface area, whose altitude ranges from 70 to 130 meters above sea level, enjoys southern/southwestern exposure, with slopes of 10% to 19%. The soil is characterized by an elevated presence of limestone and sandstone rocks, with an important backbone and a texture that ranges from medium, with good water retention, to sandy soil with excellent drainage.
The plant density in the vineyards varies from 5,500 to 6,600 plants per hectare, mostly with spur cordon and Guyot training. Apart from the unique position of the vineyards, the microclimate is strongly influenced by the vicinity of the sea – 10 kilometers as the crow flies. In particular, there are strong thermals in the spring and summer.
The microclimate is characterized by low humidity, below average rainfall for the area and a high rate of evapotranspiration.
This exceptional combination of soil and atmospheric conditions permits the cultivation of very diverse strains of grapes, which yield concentrated, complex wines that are also extraordinarily elegant and aromatic.
