Vigliano: few houses scattered along a narrow country road climbing amid the loose-laid walls on the hills south-west of Florence, is located in the area of Chianti Colli Fiorentini, on ideal lands for grapes and olive-trees. Stony, well exposed to the west/south-west, they have a definitely alkaline nature and a varying composition, with significant limestone levels, mixed with marl, sand, and loose clay. The average slope is considerable, almost 15%, with much higher peaks. Temperatures vary significantly from day to night in the summer and autumn, and there is a high incidence of strong air drifts.
