This producer has 54 hectares, straddling the municipalities of Subbiano and Arezzo, and three locations: Poggiotondo (500 metres above sea level), Le Rancole and Valloni. Poggiotondo’s vineyards are all Chianti-designated. They cover an area of 4.20 hectares, and they are planted on marl soil and trained on a spurred cordon system.
Out of the old vineyards dating back to 1970, the remaining ones today are only Vigna Grande and Vigna Aldo (about 3 hectares) with Sangiovese (70%), Canaiolo, Trebbiano and Malvasia Bianca vines. The Vigna Tata (Sangiovese only) was planted in 2002 and the Vigna dei Meli (Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Malvasia Bianca) in 2006.
Harvesting is by hand and small plastic crates are used to make sure the grapes are kept safe, so that they don’t lose the characteristics that are indispensable for quality wine. Grape production is between 30 quintals per hectare for Malvasia and Trebbiano, and 50 quintals per hectare for Sangiovese and Canaiolo.
The grapes are fermented in glass cement tanks. During fermentation, at least two “remontages” per day are carried out to garner maximum colour and aroma from the grapes. After 12 to 18 days (the duration depends on the vintage), fermentation is complete, and the wine is placed in smaller glass or wooden vats, where it remains until bottling.
The farm also has around 800 olive trees, which are all over 50 years old. Six hundred (Leccino, Moraiolo and Frantoio), are located to the south-east in the Valloni area (Arezzo) while two hundred (mainly Moraiolo), are located to the north-west in the Subbiano area.
