The Vineyards

Vineyards planted: 40 hectares.
Positioning: "rittochino" (the lines follow the ground's slope).
Trellising system: low spur cordon and guyot.
Exposure: predominantly southern and western.
Single plant layout: 2,2 x 0,8 metres for a total of 5,700 plants per hectare.

The vineyards are planted on the hilly slopes with an average altitude of 350 m a.s.l., leaving the valleys for grain crops.
The whole terrain is clayey and rich in limestone deposits, dating from different geological periods: part of this very deep, other parts very rich in fossils, both giving the wine intense and varied tones. Surrounded by woodlands, the hilly area is an ideal microclimate for vineyards and olive groves.
Sagrantino and Sangiovese are the main red grape varieties, but also Montepulciano, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are grown. Grechetto and Trebbiano Spoletino are the white grape varieties currently planted on the property.
The average age of the vines is around 15 years. The oldest Sagrantino vines are 30 years old.
