The estate Vineyards
Cecione covers a surface area of approx. 30 hectares of land, of which 6 are vineyards, 12.50 are olive groves and cropland, while the rest are oak and holm groves. The land, situated 400 metres above sea level, is characterised by low-intensity cultivation (2.80x0.80). The soil is entirely marly. New vineyards were planted keeping the land level lines. Among the red grape varieties, Sangiovese is in first place, followed by Cabernet Sauvignon and Canaiolo, and by an autochthonous vineyard comprising Mammolo, Cilegiolo, Prugnolo, Colorino and round-leaved Sangiovese. White grapes include Trebbiano, Malvasia and Chardonnay. The hard wheat of the Cappelli variety stretches over 2 hectares, while the soft wheat of the Verna variety covers 1.5 hectares of land.
