The estate

The Winery

The recently completed Poggio La Noce winery is built entirely underground, right into the hillside below our beautiful olive grove. This makes it especially energy efficient and helps maintain the ideal temperature and humidity for our wines throughout the year.

Our winery is appropriately sized and optimized for small scale, high quality Vinification. Its design allows everything to be well integrated and within easy reach, for natural work flow from initial harvest to final bottling of the wine.

The winery also includes a modern, state of the art tasting area where visitors can enjoy tasting our wines in a natural organic environment. Thanks to large sliding windows, the tasting room is naturally integrated with its surrounding landscape, with stunning views of our valley and the vineyards.

The Vineyard

The vineyard is situated at an elevation of 800 feet, facing south-southwest, giving it perfect sun exposure from morning to evening. It sits on a hillside with a steep incline providing good drainage. The soil is a mix of shaley clay with Albarese and Galestro limestone.

This hillside has proven to be a very special terroir for the Sangiovese grape, yielding beautiful fresh lively and elegant Sangiovese based wines with huge depth and good longevity potential.

Our Philosophy

Our work begins in the vineyard and carries beyond. We are driven by our love for great wine and we set out from the very beginning with an uncompromising eye for detail to produce the most beautiful and healthy grapes, thus yielding the best possible wine this terroir can produce. Our commitment to achieve excellence begins in the vineyard, where we tend to each vine individually by hand.

The same level of dedication and focus carries over to the cellar. We harvest manually and carry the fruit back to the winery, where all grape clusters are selected on a first sorting table, and then the individual berries are selected on a second sorting table, where several people check for any possible berry imperfections. Only perfect fruit will make it to the fermentation tanks. We do this for all the wines we produce, not just our top wine.
