The vineyards

The vineyards at Piemaggio extend over 12 hectares. All trained with the Guyot system, they grow over separate hillside sites with south or south-westerly aspect. The altitude of the location sits between 380 and 480 metres above sea level, with slopes of variable steepness.

Thick woods surround the vineyards on all sides. Together with the altitude and the constant breeze, the presence of the forest helps protect both vines and grapes from damaging summer droughts.

The galestro and alberese soils, part of the geological heritage of Chianti Classico sites, guarantee perfect drainage of the vineyards: an essential feature for the healthy development of the vines.


The vines

At Piemaggio, the Sangiovese grape variety reigns supreme, covering about 10 hectares in total. The clones used in the vines have been carefully selected: at the moment, six have been identified.

Colorino, Canaiolo e Ciliegiolo are the other vine varieties typical of the Chianti Classico territory that grow on the estate besides Sangiovese. Lastly, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes grow towards the production of an IGT wine.


The olive groves

600 olive trees grow on the estate’s grounds, producing an extra-virgin olive oil with all the typical features of a Tuscan oil from the Chianti hills.
