The most widely planted varieties in the Santa Lucia appellation are Sangiovese, Vermentino, Ansonica, Alicante, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Viognier and Ciliegiolo. The company’s yearly production is equal to 220.000 bottles of wine. Our vineyards, which cover an area of almost 40 hectares, are all located in the municipality of Magliano in Toscana, Orbetello and Monte Argentario. The vines grow on these lands of different and opposite geological origins, which create ideal conditions for rain water to drain, roots to breathe and plants to make the most of the minerals in the various layers of soil. Sangiovese is a variety that fascinates us and that we grow the most in our vineyards. The other native grapes that we have chosen to perfect the character of our wines are Alicante, and Vermentino and Ansonica for white wines. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Ciliegiolo and Viognier complete the range of grapes we use in our wines. The vine training methods we employ are the spurred cordon and the high cordon.
