About us

Company details

In the past the wish of each vine dresser was to make a good wine : this was the passional result that bound the vine dresser to his vineyard.

“At the farm “Il colombaio di Santa Chiara” . Those bounds are still existing nowdays between my vineyards and myself. My father Mario transferred me this passion. He teached me that the vine is produced by the land and it can be only ameliorated in the cellar, but not be changed. The secrets of the excellence of my vines are a correct treatment of the land (no pesticides) , a costant looking after the wineyard while grapes are growing, followed by a carefull selection during the vintage of the grapes (manually made)”

Alessio Logi

Handling:
No pesticides are used
Vintage:
The grapes are checked since theplants have sprouted. We also check the quantity of the grapes and the vintage of the grapes is made only when they are completely ripened. The grapes are gathered by hand and put into cases of 20 kg capacity maxi.
Cellar:
The grapes ar selected for the second time , cleaned and put into basins at controlled temperature for maceration. Later on some grapes are pressed and some not, based on the type of wine to be produced.
Vinification:
Strictly at a controlled temperature in order to maintain the orginal characteristics of the grapes, specially of “vernaccia”.

The wines are produced with local grapes which have always beencultivated in the territory of San Gimignano. Those species of vine have different and original features. Complex and strong fragrances, with a rich bouquet; when tasting you can appreciate the structure of the wine that remains in the mouth with a long, persistent aftertaste. Those wines are made to be appreciated with your meals and while drinking-through you will feel the pleasant taste enhancing each type of grapes.
