The vineyards.
Noble by Nature

The soil chart, drafted some 20 years ago, is today at the base of our ambitious plan of intervention in the vineyards; the main goal is to enhance differences and peculiarities of each parcel so as to reach the best expression of their uniqueness while enriching the wines with their diversity.

Vigneto “Scopeti”

“Scopeti” spans for some 8.000 square meters and bears the name of the adjacent access road to the Villa. Back in the days the area was rich in heathers used for the production of brooms, “scope” in Italian, thus the name “Scopeti”. Along with normal management this vineyard is at the core of a great work involving research and experimentation and consistently provides us each vintage with some of the best grapes.

Vigneto “La Villa”

The closest to the Villa – thus the name – this vineyard has been the very starting point of the ambitious renovation project and the new course of Poggio Torselli.

Vigneto “Inferno”

“Hell” in Italian, Inferno sits at the bottom of a stiff South facing slope. In its shallow and poor soil – rich in small rocks and pebbles – the vines strive for nutrition, which results in grapes with an intense minerality and deep, concentrated flavours.

Vigneto “Parco”

This vineyard itself incorporates a wide variety of expositions with several kinds of clones and rootstocks matched accordingly. This provide us with grapes of various character, flavour profile and nuances.

Vigneto “Salceto”

The gently sloping location of this vineyard offers excellent micro-clima conditions with perfect water and air drainage that allow for good control of vine vigour. The vineyard grows on the bed and terraces of the ancient river Greve and the soil provides a perfect base for a consistent quality of the crop.

Vigneto “Defizio”

Defizio vineyard sits on a gentle South-South East facing slope rising from 200-270 a.s.l. We source from here the Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes for our Vin Santo DOCG and the Pugnitello grapes for the small, exclusive production of our Bizzarria Rosato. Planted in this vineyard also several clones of Sangiovese with selected rootstocks as part of a research project that dates back to 2000; grapes coming from these vines show a particularly rich flavour profile and character.

Vigneto “Cassia”

Takes its name by the nearby road “Cassia” built by the Romans in the first century B.C. to connect Rome and Florence. Planted all to Sangiovese in 2003, it spans for 20.000 square meters. The vineyard is growing in the ancient Greve river bed on moderately alkaline soils rich of clay and limestone at an altitude of between 160 and 250 m a.s.l.; vines are cordon spur-pruned trained and planted with South exposure, along the maximum gradient of the slope.

Vigneto “Romagnola”

Planted in 2004, the small vineyard called “Romagnola” sits on a soil rich in marine substrates of flaky marl with beds of white limestone. The rows face North, along the maximum gradient of the slope, to benefit of the substantial temperature range between day and night so as to enhance the typical aromas of the different white grape varieties planted here. Guyot training method guarantees maximum respect for vines wellbeing and physiological balance.

Vigneto “Colombaia”

This U shaped vineyard comprises two opposite exposition and soil profiles. Small rocks and pebbles on the side facing North-East and a more clayey one on the slope facing South-East. This resulting in Sangiovese grapes with quite different character and flavour profiles, both interesting and complementing each other in the wines.

Vigneto “Montecapri”

Our flagship cru “Montecapri” sits at 200 metres a.s.l. on a clayey soil rich of marine substrates of foliated marl, interspersed with limestone blocks. Planted some 15 years ago, the vineyard is now at the top of its productive balance. Vines are cordon spur-pruned trained and planted with South exposure, along the maximum gradient of the slope. Here Sangiovese finds the best possible growing conditions and produces concentrated grapes with a rich array of intriguing flavours.

Vigneto “Greve”

Named by the nearby river “Greve”, its clayey soil is rich in marine substrates of foliated marl, interspersed with limestone blocks. The rocky soil – with its heat-retaining capacity and heat-reflective characteristics – allows the perfect ripening of the Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot vines planted here.
