Our Vineyards

Grape cultivation on our estate has very ancient traditions. It is situated at an altitude of about 300mt above sea level; the soil has marine origins, with an abundant presence of fossils and oyster shells and rests on a tufaceous substrata.

The climate, the microclimate, the exposure of the vineyards to the south east & south west, & the natural ventilation determine ideal conditions for a quality production.

The vineyards, comprising 50% red   ( Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Ciliegiolo) & 50% white varietals ( Grechetto, Vermentino, Procanico, Chardonnay), were  planted between 1970 & 2007.  Number of plants per hectar is 4.300 ; the pruning system is the spurred cordon. The yield per ha is 5.000/6.000  kg of red grapes and  7.000/8.000 kg of white grapes

Harvesting is done exclusively by hand in small crates avoiding the hottest hours;  the proximity of the winery to the vineyards allows an immediate crushing.
