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. Giorgio Marone, Vignamaggio’s oenologist since 2000, flanked by agronomist Francesco Naldi, who has been on the farm for 30 years, is equipped with the necessary fundamentals to be able to 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.
