The Vineyard

The Vineyard

The production area of the Fattoria Camporignano wines is located in the context of the Siena hills. Here, at an altitude of approximately 300 meters, a limited parcel was selected of that clay soil, characteristic of the areas surrounding Siena and commonly known in Tuscany as “mattaione”.

The soil, of marine origin, becomes very desiccated in the summer, stimulating the roots to seek out nourishment in depth from the mineral salts, thus conveying to the wine its unique structure.

 

The grape varieties principally employed in the vineyard are Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The grapes are hand harvested and attentively selected in order to destinate to each wine the grapes with the most suitable characteristics. Once fermentation is complete, cellar work is limited to few delicate tasks, thanks to the careful and tiring work on the vineyard, which shows through early on from the quality of the grapes.
