The Poggetti Estate lies in the Northern part of the Tuscan Maremma, among rolling hillsides just 7 km from the Tyrrhenian Sea. It extends over an area of 423 hectares (1,045 acres), of which about 37 hectares (91 acres) are dedicated to vines. The vines benefit from hot temperatures, long sun exposure, and cool evenings during the growing season. The vineyard's proximity to the sea lends its wines a particularly appreciated salinity and minerality. The dynamic, mineral-rich soil typical of the Metallurgic Hills endows the grapes grown on it with rich tannins and great personality.
