The confidence that the soil and the climate between Monte Amiata and the sea make this area a real gem was the catalyst for an ambitious project. From an abandoned old estate with about 25 hectares of vineyard and pastures emerged well-tended, naturally cultivated vineyards with the aim to produce a wine from these soils that unfolds its uniqueness in a very special way and expresses the unique character of its origin.
The property extends above a natural amphitheater facing southwest, at 450 m above sea level. Currently, six hectares are dedicated to viticulture and two hectares are planted with olive trees. High up on the hill with a breathtaking panorama is the newly renovated country house with a holiday apartment and wine shop.
Since 1998 the area enjoys the DOC status, and since 2011, even the highest quality level, DOCG. This makes the Montecucco DOCG a relatively young wine-growing region in Italy.
As in many parts of Tuscany, the Sangiovese grape dominates here as well. The cultivation conditions are ideal and the temperatures are slightly higher than in northern Tuscany, thus producing powerful and fruity wines and giving the volcanic soils a fine minerality.
In summary, it could be said that the best of two worlds are merged: northern Tuscany with the elegant Chianti Classico wines and southern Tuscany with the powerful Maremma wines.
