Soil and climatic conditions to some extent reminiscent of Bordeaux: the hot Tuscan sun "softens" the cool sea breeze and the surrounding valley hills protect the vines from the north winds. Local beauty of this region have been immortalized in the works of famous Italian poet and Nobel Prize winner Giosuè Carducci.

Rounding out the number of varieties Vermentino and Shiraz, which convey the uniqueness of the local region. We apply all the classic art of viticulture, to achieve the best quality: the grapes are harvested and sorted by hand - first in the vineyard and then in the winery. Red varieties fermented separately and then mixed to achieve the best balance.
