About Winery and Wines

The implant of the vineyards begins at the end of the nineties; in five years 7 hectares of vines are implanted to produce DOCG Morellino di Scansano grapes. At that time all new plantations followed the same trends: high plant density, irrigation and choice of "international" varieties.

We preferred another way. Our vineyards comply with traditional planting distances, with a maximum of 3,500 plants per hectare, and are not provided with irrigation. We started grafting vines with material from old vineyards in the area. Today beside Sangiovese we have a small amount of Alicante, which characterizes the blend of our wine.

Our production style entails allowing the vines to express their full potential, and directing the production only through agricultural techniques and selective thinning. The absence of irrigation enables us to have a wine that expresses the flavors of the vintage, different every year depending on weather conditions.
