Vineyards under the volcano
Our vineyards grow up where the Amiata overlooks to Maremma, in the Montecucco Docg wine area.
Our vineyards grow up on the slopes of Monte Amiata, in the Montecucco Docg area, in that valley that lldebrando lmberciadori used to call the “Conca d ‘Oro” (gold valley) and where Sangiovese grape finds the ideal habitat to express itself the best.
The altitude of our vineyards (400/500 meters above sea level), the lava soil composition and an important temperature range, help us to produce sober and aromatically rich wines with soft and elegant tannins.
Three wines, a single grape variety, the rigor of processing, the respect for long lead times. When you know what to say, you don’t need useless words.
“There are two fluids good for the human body, wine inside and olive oil outside”, so Plinio il Vecchio wrote wrote, recalling that at that time olive oil was sacred and it was used for cosmetics and for consecration rites. Then we started considering it as a food.
We are Simone and Stefania, welcome to our home! Amiata… i vini del vulcano, is a very small company, a dream. It tells a story of love, a story of homecoming, because it is difficult not to hear the call of Monte Amiata.
