The Fattoria and all our vineyards are situated in a hilly countryside which from about a height of roughly 300m a.s.l. descends gently towards the coast opening on to the Tyrrhenian Sea, Monte Argentario and the Isle of Giglio.
The well balanced soil has a medium consistency containing as it does a large percentage of sand, a satisfactory amount of clay, an absence of lime and a decidedly rich skeleton. It is a territory which permits good ingress for watering, a perfect oxygenation and great penetrability of the roots of the plants. These are the characteristics, together with the amount of sun and sea breezes which allow the production of great wines, even from white grapes, having full bodies and capable of ageing well.
This precious soil structure, the exposition of the vines, the scarse rainfall, a very different climate from that of inland Tuscany help and encourage the biological side of the cultivation. From 2011 on the Fattoria has adopted an exclusive biological approach for its vineyards; this choice means that from 2014 all wines will have the “biological wine” certificate.
