lungagnano vineyardsThe vineyards are: Piastraia (4ha) and Vallone (3ha), they are located in different areas, both having perfect exposure. Each plot has been carefully selected and possesses unique soil characteristics which are best suited to the production of our varietals.

Piastraia is the most important vineyard of our winery, it sits on top of the hill of Castagneto Carducci, more than 300 mt above sea level offering a spectacular view from the hilltops overlooking the sea. The soil has a distinctive mineral base made of marl schist.

The Vallone Vineyard surrounds Villa Borgeri, our holiday-farm, in an area of low hills where we find a soil tending to clay and medium calcareous, which best suits our white and rosé.piastraia vineyards

The choice of the grape varieties was made according to the Bolgheri DOC regulatory commission and includes a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah for red grapes and Vermentino and Viognier for white grapes.

The red grapes are all spurred cordon while the remaining are guyot, and all have a medium high density of stocks(6.000/ha), which are cultivated respecting the environment. Harvesting is manual as are most of the cultivating operations.
