Vineyards: All of the grapes are

estate-grown and located all

around their property. The soils

are pretty consistent around

most parcels - limestone and an

alluvial influence, very stony,

gravelly, a soil where not much

else but their vines and olive

trees can thrive. The farming

has been organic since the

first generation in the 1860’s

(though officially certified since

2012), and biodynamic across

all 16 hectares since 2012.


Vinification: The Sangiovese

and Trebbiano grapes are

harvested around the same

time and hence vinified

together. Destemmed then

fermented in large concrete

vats where maceration is for

only around 2-3 days. The wine

is then pressed and returned

to concrete though a small

part also goes into stainless

steel. Bottled in March with a

tiny sulphite addition, unfined

unfiltered.
