The earth

Our vines, like our olive trees, are grown all around the hill of Podere di Montelupo. It extends for 40 hectares of which approximately 24 are planted with vineyards at an altitude of 300 meters above sea level.

They grow in the Chianti Classico production area and then yieldthe typicality of the "Gallo Nero" territory.

A typical terroir of the south-eastern area of the municipality of Castellina in Chianti, characterized by clayey and calcareous soils, with the presence of sand and marine fossils.


The Vine

Exposed to the south-east and north-west with a  plantation of approximately 4600 vines per hectare, our vines give us quality grapes every year for the production of DOCG and IGT wines.

All our vineyards have a Guyot training system to allow excellent leaf exposure, improving the growth of the plant and the grape itself. 

In the rows of red grapes we find mainly Sangiovese, the basis for all our Chianti Classico DOCG, but also Canaiolo, Colorino, Ciliegiolo, Alicante Bouchet and Carbenet Sauvignon for the Super Tuscan IGT.

Continuing in those of white grapes the presence of Trebbiano Toscano prevails but there are also Malvasia, Chardonnay and Ansonica vines.

The Olive Tree

The olive grove is approximately 1 hectare in size and contains olive trees of the Frantoio, Moraiolo and Leccino varieties.

The oil produced is Chianti Classico, Protected Designation of Origin.

It is an extra virgin oil with a slightly spicy scent, well balanced and with a light bitter taste.

The method followed for production has remained unchanged over time, the harvesting of the olives is in fact still carried out by hand, and the processing in the mills - which are located in the same production area as the olives - begins within three days of the harvest, to be able to guarantee the high quality that distinguishes the product.
