Tuscany Vineyards

The Osteria delle Macchie vineyard, about 2.3 ha, is located on a hill at an altitude of 250 meters above sea level and exposed to the south / south-east. Most of the vines (1.3 ha) were implanted in 2001; in 2006 a further plot of 0.9 ha was planted, in the lower part of the hill exposed most to the south. The vine is the Sangiovese (mass selection, for a part, in addition to other three widely widespread clones between Chianti Classico and Montalcino).

The breeding system used is the Guyot, a method that requires more work in the vineyard than the spurred cordon, but which respects much more the plant, that can live longer repaying the hard work with the production of excellent fruits with a good balance.

The plant density is 5,680 vines / ha.

The soil is of medium texture with a slight prevalence of sand, offering excellent drainage capacity; it also has a good presence of minerals, in fact it is particularly rich in calcium and magnesium.
