The land and the vineyards of the Montemaggiore farm are located in the heart of the Tuscany region, on the hills half-way between the provinces of Siena and Arezzo. They overlook the so-called “crete senesi” – the unusual natural “lunar landscape” created by prehistoric erosions on sand and clay, namely great gashes like open wounds of the land – as well as the century-old woods and pine forests. The alternation of olive groves and rows of vines creates a charming and multifarious landscape which is both sweet and wild.
The farm is located in Capraie (in the province of Arezzo), four kilometres from the village of Palazzuolo, 20 minutes by car from Arezzo and Siena and less than a hour from Florence and Perugia. The 2,000 hectares of land, vineyards (75 hectares), olive groves, woods of Turkey oaks, oaks, chestnuts and cluster pines.
Our rocky soils, manured with naturally and basically poor products and substances, do not ensure large production, albeit always obtained with particularly healthy grapes. This is the reason why we produce genuine and high quality wine. The genuineness of our wines is ensured by the strictly organic farming of our vineyards (E.U. regulation no. 2078, Measure A2). Our grape varieties range from the traditional Sangiovese, Trebbiano, Canaiolo Nero and Malvasia, of which we preserve the original clones, to the most reeent ones such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot for red wines and Chardonnay and Sauvignon for white wines. They are all grown according to the Guyot system.
