    Organic farming

    A good vintner must favour the natural balance of the ecosystem

    With this in mind, we work to support the development of life on the ground. We use a reduced quantity of copper and sulfur for phytosanitation, we favor the use of resistance inductors to increase the intrinsic defense of the plants, we plant barley, mustard and clover between the rows of vines and we use compost derived from the pomace and stalks. These are only a few of the factors that encourage an optimum balance of organic substances in which our vines sink their roots.

    All this enhances the unique characteristics of the terroir which is transferred to the grapes that we nurture carefully from flowering to harvest.

    The Vineyards

    Our vineyards lie in five different locations surrounding the Castle, at altitudes that vary from 300 to 500 meters above sea level. With a southern and south western exposure, the vines plunge their roots in clayey soils rich in limestone. Due to these diversities our Sangiovese has a considerable body and therefore unleashes therefore complex and structured qualities as well as sweetness and elegance. We also cultivate small quantities of Malvasia Nera and Syrah.
