OUR PHILOSOPHY

https://www.terreneremontalcino.it/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/separatore.png
DEDICATION
Our grapes are carefully selected manually in the vineyard, several harvests are carried out when necessary, in order to obtain the perfect ripeness for each small plot of vine that is vinified individually.
CRAFTSMANSHIP
Fermentation occurs spontaneously in stainless steel vats with indigenous yeasts, with analytical and tasting controls. Long macerations with the skins give life to "the song of the vats"

TRADITION
Large Slavonian oak barrels store our wines for long refinements, a few months for the Rosso di Montalcino up to 48 months for the Riserva, preserving the identity of a unique territory
RESPECT
We promote biodiversity, using techniques such as the protection of beneficial insects, mulching, green manure, fertilization with manure and the use of natural products, which allows us to maintain the relationship with the surrounding habitat (organic certificates in the vineyard and cellar)

Fun and
Passion

3 ha where the CILIEGIOLO, a native Tuscan grape variety, was recently planted to give life to a new and alternative wine project.
