Our family has been producing wine for over 160 years. We make wine only from our grapes, a selection of local varieties that we grow completely naturally, with no use of neither chemical nor organic fertilizer and no herbicide. We do not even water our plants. We only cut the grass when necessary. Our vineyard is situated in the geographic area of hills called “Candia”, in the northest part of T u s c a n y, w h i c h b o a s t s a millennial wine tradition, that dates back before the ancient Romans. Our land consists of 5 Hectares,
entirely terraced, with up to 80% slopes, that often suffer from landslides and constraints us to a m e r e l y h a n d w o r k i n t h e vineyard. Also in the cellar our thinking is that wine evolves on his own, and only a great connection between the grapes and the cellar allows to
produce wines with a strong character and a long life. Today our Vermentino Bianco,
our Vernero and our Federico I° can be drunk also after 20 years of agening.
