The vineyards extend for about 40 hectares on medium-textured soils with a prevalence of sand and silt that derive from the sandstone rocks of the Chianti boulder. Among the cultivated varieties there are Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Montepulciano, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Trebbiano and Malvasia di Montegonzi. 
The conversion to organic took place in 2003,

The fermentation vessels are in stainless steel or in terracotta amphorae while the ageing takes place in french oak barriques and tonneaux or in 20 HL barrels. Thanks to a 50 kw photovoltaic system, we internally produce all the energy necessary for our needs.
