Podere Casa al Vento
The clayey soil, typical of our area, gives to the wine great quality and structure
Hot summers with occasional rains, day / night temperature range in September and mild winters are the elements for the perfect health of the vine.
For our products we have selected only grape varieties that are ideal for the area and the territory. Sangiovese and Canaiolo nero, Colorino and Mammolo are the true representatives of Tuscany. Cabernet Sauvignon makes its way among the great classics of our area.
Our vineyards are located on a hillock with north-east exposure in the southern area of MontepulcianoThis exposure allows the vines to have thermal excursions and considerable ventilation.
the care of the vines and the working of the land are carried out directly by the family and the treatments and fertilizations are carried out with respect for nature. In fact, we prefer mechanical processing instead of herbicides and the fight ... instead of pesticides.
we only use our grapes coming from a manual harvest, according to the tradition and the territory. After a careful vinification, the wines are transferred in oak barrels for the aging.
