A total of 12 hectares are planted, at a vineyard density of 7,000 vines per hectare and trained to the spurred cordon system; they are equally divided among three different exposures: south, southeast, and southwest.
The old family vineyards provided the starting point, and all of the expertise that I possess today is the fruit of long, attentive observation and selection, of micro-vinifications of all of the various clones and grape varieties growing in these small vineyard parcels.
Today, we grow mainly sangiovese, malvasia nera, and tempranillo. All of the planting material is selected and propagated on our estate from budwood from local vineyards. From the early 1990s to today we have studied enormous numbers of grape varieties, all of them exclusively indigenous and traditional to this area.
