Here the 71 hectares of vineyards along with their delicate harmony fit in perfectly with this unique and fascinating corner of the Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG.

Our Wine certificates:
The vineyards are located between 190 and 235 metres above sea level, with prevalent exposure north-south.
The vineyards have an average density of 5,000 plants per hectare. The vines planted, the result of clonal selections made in the experimental vineyard of the farm, are predominantly Sangiovese, as well as Merlot, Canaiolo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Colorino, Vermentino and Viognier.
Thanks to the dimensions of our company, we have been able to choose the most suitable place and land for each variety of grapes.
Tradition and evolution
For our CRU “Belsedere, Loccareto and 15 Staiori “ the process of fermentation and maceration take place in barriques for a period of about 15 days, during which we do manual punching down several times a day.
The grapes used in the production of our top-quality wines are hand-picked, de-stemmed and selected on the sorting table.
A modern and well-equipped wine cellar: the stainless steel tanks are fitted with automatic temperature control, and pump-over and punching machines.
