The wine produced by Valdorcia Terre Senesi comes from a careful selection of grapes and grape varieties, privileging Sangiovese, which is aged in small and large French oak barrels of various toasting and then refined in the bottle. Blends are also produced using autoctone and international varieties.
The vineyards are located in a valley exposed to the sun from the south-east and south-west at an altitude of 400/500 meters above sea level, in a ventilated place that descends down to the artificial lake.
The quality of our wines comes from the passion for our vineyards, characterized by a soil rich in minerals and the presence of rough fragments of stones called skeleton that guarantee a perfect aeration of the soil.
The absence of stagnation of water and humidity, reduces to a minimum attacks of parasites and fungal diseases, facilitating a low environmental impact agronomic management, according to organic farming regulations.
The temperate climate, warm during the day and cool at night, helps the ripening of the grapes. The farming system adopted by our company is that of spurred cordon and guyot with inter-row grassing. The pruning done with great care, the continuous cleaning of the greenery and the selection of the best bunches allows us to bring the best grapes to the cellar.
