The winery is located on 180 hectares (70 planted to wine grapes) in the heart of Chianti Classico about 350 meters (1,148 feet) above sea level in an area featuring calcareous, rocky soil with layers of sandstone, silt and clay as well as marine sediment, rich in minerals. The winery specializes in Sangiovese and has planted about 80% of the vineyards to about 15 different clones. The other 20% is planted to Merlot, Cabernet and a bit of Trebbiano and Malvasia. The winery practices are all sustainable and meant to protect the environment, land and community.
