THE SELECTION

THE VINEYARD

The 14 hectares of the Le Caggiole vineyard are located at an altitude of 350 m above sea level, on the road from Montepulciano to Gracciano. Although not far from the Asinone vineyard, its microclimate and geological profile are completely different. The exposure of the vines is east, the terrain is decidedly sandy, of marine origin.
