The Wine

Our vineyards are on the slope of a hill at 500 meters above sea level and we grow Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Foglia tonda grapes. The latter is a native vine rediscovered a few years ago in the Tuscan vineyards and is so called precisely because its leaves are rounded and not pointed.

The Oil

Every year, at the end of October, the olive harvest begins, squeezed after only two "cold" days to obtain "l'Olio Novo".

There are 2 types of oil: the traditional Tuscan oil "Perla Verde", obtained from the collection of the "FRANTOIO, LECCINO, MORAIOLO and PENDOLINO" varieties and the other type of monovarietal oil called "Perla d'Oro" of high quality and with intense aromas obtained from the "FRANTOIO" variety, cold-pressed and immediately after harvesting in October.
