Forests, hills and an ancient manor: Maremma, a delightful landscape of fields, olive groves and vineyards. A veritable house of wine. In the heart of Maremma, Jacopo Biondi Santi and his children are writing a new chapter in their family’s history of winemaking excellence.
At an altitude between 300 and 460 m a.s.l. and a south-southwest exposure, rolling over the gentle slopes of Tuscan Maremma are the vineyards of Castello di Montepò, 50 hectares of the estate’s current total of 600. Vineyards, olive groves and farm land surrounded by coppice woods just south of Grosseto, on the parallel of the Rocca Aldobrandeschi of Talamone: a magical place that Jacopo Biondi Santi, channelling his family’s legacy of experience and dedication, has patiently transformed into the heart of his modern oenological project. But the value of the estate lies not only in its undisputable and bewitching beauty, because the choice of the perfect area to fulfil such an ambitious viticultural project cannot be made without precision and certainty.
