The estate is located in Scansano, in the heart of Maremma, near the Etruscan site of Ghiaccio Forte of the IV Century BC to whose name it is attributed and where the cultivation of vines was a vital resource.
The property includes 35 hectares divided in two vineyards, as well as pasture and woodland to preserve local biodiversity.
Pian del Dado
Pian del Dado, medium textured soil, exposed to the east, affected by the cool influences from the nearby Monte Amiata.
Colonna Aquilaia, clay-limestone soil that provides structure and vigor to the grapes, exposed to the northwest, benefits from the breeze coming from the sea.
Clay-limestone soil, west exposure, is affected by sea winds and enjoys a good temperature range between daylight and night thanks to the proximity of Mount Amiata.
The main grape variety is Sangiovese, locally known as Morellino, and there is also Carignano Nero, existing in this area since ancient times, documented in the land registry of 1929 and now the subject of study for its enhancement by the University of Pisa.
Vermentino has also been recently planted.
The unique characteristics of soil, combined with organic and biodynamic farming practices, enhance the personality of our wines, true expressions of an extraordinary territory.
