||Sunny, hilly areas with South-East exposure.
|Composition of the land
||Mixed-texture soils ranging from limestone to clay.
||Sangiovese grapes for drying are picked by hand in crates in mid-September, after a careful selection and a quality check.
||The grapes are allowed to rest in special fruit warehouses at controlled temperature and humidity where they are left to dry for at least sixty days. Wine-making starts with soft pressing followed by temperature-controlled fermentation on the skins at 25°C. Pumping-over and punching-down are performed to extract color and allow aromatic components to develop. Later on, racking is carried out to separate the skins from the must.
||One part of the wine is aged in barriques for a minimum period of 9 months.
