The vineyard Poggio cultivates 14 hectares of vineyards. They are in the immediate vicinity and consist of more than 85% of the grapes Sangiovese, Alicante. The remaining 15% from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The older vines are in a density of 3,000 per hectare, in the vine from 2,000 newly planted vines, the planting density is 6,000 per hectare.
The method of growing the vines is called Cordon Royat, it has its origin in France. The vines have a short trunk on which a single branch grows, which is tied to a wire.
So that good grapes can emerge, a healthy soil is an important prerequisite. Since the soil types in the Maremma differ within short distances, the type of cultivation must adapt. In general, the Valle brothers work as little as possible on the vineyards with heavy machinery to keep the soil permeable, elastic and non-dense. becomes.
Harvest - manual grpae picking guarantees that only the best fruits of the vines get into their wines.
Of course, the harvest is done by hand.
Using the best traditional methods and modern scientific knowledge, Umberto and Bernardo Valle believe that it is important to work with nature and to find a healthy, reciprocal balance between agriculture and nature.
Visitors to the two brothers are asking again and again, what is the difference between organic wine and conventional wine? To summarize, it is mainly the treatment of soil and vines in the vineyard that is different and less of how the wine is treated in the cellar.
So that the soil remains healthy and naturally fertile, the vines are not only healthy, but also produced in the best quality for a first-class wine. In addition, the microfauna and flora in the soil and in the soil are promoted. In the vineyard, no chemicals are used so that no chemicals enter the grapes. In the winery do not use any of the additives that are contained in conventional wines. Also, the amount of sulfites used are far below the legally permitted dose. The end result is wines that reflect their origins - not the result of chemical manipulation!
