Castello di Fonterutoli

Caggio


This macro-area purchased in 2006 is adjacent to Fonterutoli and located at a height of 270 to 370 meters above sea level; it extends over an area of about 45 hectares presenting vineyards planted with Sangiovese, Malvasia Nera, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The soil presents a texture with a tendency to clay with plenty of structure, while the vineyards are characterized in part by the density of planting, which ranges from 3,700 plants/ha on pruned spur stocks to 6,300 plants/ha for new plantings.
As a result of the clay soil and the lower height, the area range is suited for the production of wines with richer structure and tannins.
