Vineyards

The vineyards remain the heart of the farm and extend over 70 hectares.

The Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malvasia Bianca and Trebbiano varieties are situated in six different pedoclimatic environments; each with its own different climatic and soil conditions.

The vineyards are situated at an average altitude of 350 metres above sea level and are predominantly southwest and east facing.

The main vineyard contains Sangiovese and occupies 82% of the grape growing area.

 

BIODIVERSITY

In 2014 Vignamaggio has undertaken a local vine-variety restoration project, selecting vine stumps which are genetically lesser known but which have always been present in the area: the Noah’s ark project.

Sangiovese, Occhiorosso, Malvasia bianca, Canaiolo nero, Mammolo and other varieties have been analysed in order to recuperate a valuable genetic heritage, and in so doing, contribute to local biodiversity.

TERRITORY AND SUB-AREAS

Today Vignamaggio’s wines come from 61 vineyard plots grouped into 9 areas. The wealth of variety this land offers facilitates the privilege of creating a variety of wines in synchronicity with terroirs. Our team can decide whether to create an assemblage, a harmonious representation of the characteristics of each plot, or to focus on single varietal wines, each from a specific vineyard with its own distinctive identity.

WINTER PRUNING
Posted on Wednesday January 20, 2021

Never as in the vineyard is it fair to say that in January we make a clean break ( a “sharp cut” in Italian) with the past: it’s pruning time. Winter pruning is an essential practice for the well-being and vigor of the plant and prepares the vine to produce for the next year. Pruning […]

THE FESTIVE WOODLANDS
Posted on Saturday December 19, 2020

The Vignamaggio woods are scattered with paths that wind through a rich, fragrant and welcoming Mediterranean vegetation: the trees are not very large, but healthy and lush. Through their foliage one can glimpse the remains of ancient dry-stone walls, reminders that every corner of this land was once cultivated and that the woods, before the […]
