Poggio Trevvalle is the name of a hill (80 m. Above sea level) of 500 m
southeast of the village "Arcille" which is near the medieval town of Campagnatico and Grosseto, the capital of the province of Maremma.
Poggio Trevvalle is located at the foothills of Monte Amiata (1783 m. Above sea level) and only a few hundred meters from the confluence of the Ombrone river and the Trasubbie stream.
From a geological point of view, the soil in the Poggio Trevvalle vineyards has its origins in the sedimentation of the Upper Miocene and Pliocene (Zancleum - Piacenzium). It consists of Pliocene marine deposits (conglomerates) and helps to give Poggio Trevvalle's organic wines a distinctive, slightly salty note.
10 hectares of the total of 13.5 hectares of vineyards are located on a slope facing south. It consists of silt-loamy soil. The grapes growing on it make round, generous wines. The remaining 3.5 hectares of vineyards are planted on a slope in a northerly direction. The soil there is loamy and gives the organic wines more strength and elegance.
