The vineyards of Fattoria di Sammontana are located along the hills that border the Arno River, 20km to the south west of Florence. Today, the family - now in its fourth generation - runs the farm according to organic and biodynamic practices, with the intent to fully preserve and sustain the traditions and winemaking history of the land.
They tend 13 hectares of vineyards and more than 3,000 olive trees, planted between 70 and 150 meters above sea level. The soil is alluvial, and as such is full of stones, gravel, and pebbles of various sizes that are technically referred to as “skeletons”. This soil, usually defined as “ungrateful”, is the one that gives character and personality to their wines. They vinify their wines naturally, with fermentation using wild yeasts since 2007. They have been certified organic since 2009 and started biodynamic viticulture in 2012. As part of their philosophy of minimum intervention in the cellar, they allow only very low sulphur levels.
