Terroir

Our land,
our heritage

Vigna Ferraiole, Vigna Egle, Vigna Contessa and Vigna Colombaio are just some of our most important Sangiovese Grosso’s vines. Spurred cordon vineyards facing South are located in the heart of the Val d’Orcia Park, Unesco World Heritage. The soil texture is medium grain with good levels of marl and shale, dating from the Eocene period.

The Sangiovese Grosso clone is selected from the eldest vines of the estate characterized by straggly bunches and big berries with thick skin. It is a particularly representative kind of Sangiovese coming from Montalcino area, which gives quality even in difficult vintages.
