Giovan Battista Basile purchased this land in 1999, involving his family in the endeavor as well. The property is located in Maremma, Tuscany, in the Municipality of Cinigiano and had been left in a state of abandon for 30 years. Giovan Battista has always diligently attended to all of the agricultural and oenological activities with the help of Maurizio Saettini, a young and active winemaker. Giovan Battista’s wife Ilaria, together with their young sons Antonio and Federico, is in charge of welcoming guests as well as of organizing the wine tasting events. On these occasions the wines are accompanied by genuine, wholesome products and traditional homemade cooking.
The lands extend for approximately 34 hectares. They are mostly exposed towards South-West, in an ideal position for sun radiation permitting the vineyards to be caressed by the sun all day long. The altitude varies in height between 380 and 330 meters. The soil has a prevalently calcareous composition; characteristic of this territory is the so-called galestro, a rock that crumbles in time because of bad weather, thus creating an ideal environment for the vines. In summer, the temperature rarely exceeds 30°Celsius, thus ensuring a dry climate thanks also to the constant ventilation of the land.
