Vineyards

Our vineyards are composed of the various species of vines typical of Chianti: the species most widely represented is Sangiovese, the main protagonist of Chianti and of Tuscan wines in general, followed by other minor varieties such as Canaiolo, Colorino, and lastly Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and to a lesser extent Cabernet Franc.

We also produce varieties of white grapes, such as Trebbiano del Chianti, aromatic Malvasia, Moscato and San Colombano. The forms of production that we employ are spurred cordons, French guyot and the Tuscan archlet.

Of the 5 hectares of vineyards that we tend, approximately 3 produce Chianti Colli Fiorentini DOCG grapes, whereas the other 2 produce IGT grapes . The quantities produced per hectare correspond to those indicated by the Chianti Colli Fiorentini production regulations,  i.e. 70-80 ql/ha.

La vigna di Poggio

La Vigna di Poggio takes its name from the old propriety of this vineyard, Poggio Ubertini. Already in the past century farmers working at Poggio Ubertini decided that this sunny spot was perfect to grow the vine. We planted a brand new vineyard in the 2003, renewing the decisions of the old farmers and believing that this spot is still perfect to grow the vine and make good wine.

This vineyards extends itself for 1,5 ectars and we planted Sangiovese, Colorino, Malvasia aromatica e Merlot. The  plant density is 3400 plant/ha.

La vigna di Benjamin

La Vigna di Benjamin was planted in 2003, in occasion of the first family nephew’s birth, Benjamin. This vineyard is about 1 ectar and we planted all typical tuscan variety of grapes, like Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino. The plant density is 3400 plant/ha.

Olive groves

Our precious Olive Oil derives from the numerous olive-trees covering about 8 of the 20 hectares of hillside clayey soil surrounding the company, which has been destined to the cultivation of olive-trees and vines for hundreds of years.

From these plants, carefully tended year after year, we obtain the olives which, after passing through a press employing cold pressing procedures, yield a superior-quality extra-virgin oil, which carries with it all the essence of the hills on which these olive trees grow, and are permanently cultivated.

The main qualities of olive-trees present in our territory include Moraiolo, Leccino, Frantoio and Piangente, as well as smaller quantities of other qualities.

The care given to the environment and to the plants leads to a sustainable agronomic system of management, involving a careful selection of the products used for the phytosanitary care of the olive groves, when necessary, and a targeted, mainly organic, fertilisation, in the knowledge that we must simply help plants in the most natural possible way to do what it is already, by nature, destined to do.

Olive harvest is made all by hand, tree after tree, year after year. The manual harvest requires more time and work, but it allows us to preserve our trees from mechanical traumas and to control the olives’ quality directly on the tree.
As we do in the vineyards, we use only organic fertilizer. We use  copper and sulphate, trying to avoid the unnecessary treatments. Respect for nature starts from the little things.
