Fattoria di Sammontana is an organic and biodynamic farm located in Montelupo Fiorentino, along the Arno valley, just 20 Km. from Florence. We tend about 13 hectares of vineyards and more than 3,000 olive trees, planted between 70 and 150 meters above sea level. The soil is alluvial, and as such is full of stones, gravel, and pebbles of various sizes that are technically referred to as “skeletons”. This soil, usually defined as “ungrateful”, is the one that gives character and personality to our wines. We vinify our wines naturally, with fermentation using wild yeasts since 2007. We are certified organic since 2009 and started biodynamic viticulture in 2012. As part of our philosophy of minimum intervention in the cellar, we allow only very low sulphur levels.
