Soils

Our vineyards are immersed in the splendid setting of Bolgheri, protected by green hills and caressed by gentle summer breezes originating from the sea.

Four plots, each with different characteristics:

Il Puntone

It extends along Via Bolgherese and is home to the oldest installations of the farm. While several varieties are present, here Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc can best express their character.

Il Poggio

On the hills close to Via Bolgherese, from which, on cold days when the northerly wind is blowing, the islands in the Tuscan archipelago and the snowy peaks of the Apennines can be seen, we planted a vineyard of Merlot with terrace arrangement, with the vineyard’s rows alternating with age-old olive trees, overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea. And a Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc vineyard in Rittochino with excellent exposure. Here in a highly heterogeneous soil where skeleton, gray clays and looser soils alternate in a few meters, the grapes obtained give deep and complex wines.

Area: 1 hectars
Altitude: 100 m
Pruning: cordon trained, Guyot
Grape: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Caberbet Franc
Soil: clay, silt, sand with many stones
Year of Planting: 2022
