Montepulciano-Mobile
Asinone Asinaccio Caggiole - Terrazze Caggiole - Vignone Gracciano Valiano

Asinone

Exposure: South/South-West
Altitude: 350- 400 m.s.l.m.
Geological origin: Pliocene
Composition: Light brown clayey type sediments often resting on compact sands. The composition is calcareous with a high concentration of calcium-magnesium phosphates, responsible for a high degree of minerality.

Juiciness, compactness and persistence. A kilometer away from Le Caggiole there is Asinone. Its shape in Tuscany is said to look like the ‘back of a donkey’ which gives it its name, which subsequently became one of the very first single vineyards in Tuscany and Italy.

Asinaccio

Exposure: North/North-East
Altitude: 350- 400 m.s.l.m.
Geological origin: Pliocene
Composition: Silty clay with calcium and magnesium.

A clay-type counterfort above Asinone, specular in style, yet fresher.

Caggiole - Terrazze

Exposure: East
Altitude: 300-370 m.s.l.m.
Geological origin: Pliocene
Composition: Sandy with silty lenses and high calcium concentration.
Destined for Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.

Underneath Le Caggiole there are its terraces. They have the same origin, yet with fragmented compositions and altitudes.

Caggiole - Vignone

Exposure: East
Altitude: 350-370m.s.l.m.
Geological origin: Pliocene
Composition: Sediments consisting of coarse sands with the presence of pudding, sandstones and marine fossils. The composition of the sands is slightly calcareous with an important concentration of potassium and its salts, Destined for Caggiole.

Elegancy, verticality and tension. The area exposed East guarantees its own microclimate, mild and fresh, unique in Montepulciano, and since ancient times it was renowned to be particularly vocated for producing balanced and savory wines.

Gracciano

Exposure: South-West
Altitude: 290-310 m.s.l.m.
Geological origin: Pliocene
Composition: Silty clays on pebbles and sands of Pliocene origin.

Gracciano is the area that frames the estate, hence one of the most ancient properties.

Valiano

Exposure: West
Altitude: 320-350 m.s.l.m.
Geological origin: Pleistocenica
Composition: Clays and fine sands.

The area of Valiano, more recent than the one in Montepulciano, is characterized by soft and tenuous tannins.
