After many years employed working for family winery and wine cellar, I decided to start my project aimed to the local wine varieties promotion with particular attention to the “Ciliegiolo”.
The winery is located in the community of Poggi del Sasso, in the heart of Maremma Toscana along the slopes of Amiata Mountain, between Montalcino and Scansano. The vineyards, aged 8 to 50 years, lay on sandstone land at an elevation that changes from 300 to 400 meters above see level. The exposition and cool and aired climate allow a minimum use of treatments and facilitate the plantation with organic method. The main wine is “L’IDEALE” which is the result of different micro vinifications of Ciliegiolo clones, taking in the family winery lands and propagate through the graft activity. The present production is about 25.000 bottles but the purpose is to reach almost 40.000 bottles/year. Sangiovese and Vermentino, proposed in minimum quantity, complete my work, allowing to cultivate a passion for these wine varieties.
