The Tenuta comprises some 25 hectares south of Montalcino, in the heart of Tuscany, in an area dense with Mediterranean scrub lying between the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Val d’Orcia. Here our vineyards are some 16 acres of vines lying at 300 metres’ elevation on the southwest slope. The vines enjoy optimal exposure, a temperate climate and Tuscan pebble-rich, schistose soils, ensure a gradual, complete ripening of the clusters and give our wines their rich flavours and elegance, heightened by ageing in oak.
We make wines that can communicate not only the history and identity of a growing area celebrated throughout the world, but the genuine, sincere spirit of its people as well. We lavish attention on our vineyards and on our grapes, respecting the earth and its rhythms. Balance and genuineness are what drive our aspirations, and those values are obvious in our wines as well. Wines made with hands and by the heart.
