Santa10 is a firm extending for 8 hectares, 1,5 hectares of vineyards (sangiovese, petit verdot, cabernet) and 430 olive trees. It’s a vine growing firm in the municipal territory of Siena, with tuff and clay. The vineyards were planted in 2003 and the first harvest was made in 2007. Average production is 55 ql. of grapes per hectare. We follow the methods of organic farming. Vinification is made in inox tanks without selectioned yeasts in the cellar obtained in the underground of the medioeval tower of the firm. The ageing process starts with 24 months in oak barrels of 10 hl and then continues in bottles for the following 12 months (not filtered). Bottling is made especially using 1,5 l bottles for the best ageing process. We produce 7.500 bottles.
