Farm - The vineyards
The wines of Tenuta Valdipiatta are obtained exclusively from grapes grown in its own vineyards, which extend for approximately 30 hectares over the hills in the municipality of Montepulciano.
80% of the vineyards is dedicated to the cultivation of Sangiovese, the traditional Tuscan variety, which in Montepulciano takes the local name of “Prugnolo Gentile”.
Canaiolo Nero and Mammolo complete the range of typical grapes of the area, whereas Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Nero provide the basis for the Typical Geographical designated wines, which are produced side by side with the traditional production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Rosso di Montepulciano and Chianti.
All the vineyards were renewed at the beginning of the 90’s, with the exception of two cru named Sanguineto and Vigna d’Alfiero planted at the beginning of the 70’s of the last century, for which only the bearing structures and the failed areas were replaced.
