Vineyards

Within the 450-acre property, the fifteen hectares of vineyards are located in four main areas, all over 180 meters above sea level, ensuring better ventilation and ensuring protection from night moisture due to the proximity of the sea.

The vineyards of “Poggio Turco” are planted with Aleatico. The perfect south-facing exposure of Poggio Turco is ideal for an excellent ripening of the Aleatico variety, which is the emblem of Elban viticulture.

The area of “Gorgaccio” ,with its facing to the east, favors a morning exposure to the sunshine, which dries the grapes from the night moisture and protects them from the stronger afternoon sun. Here are vineyards, primarily, of Vermentino and Alicante.

The Vineyards of “Pascoli Alti” are located at 300 meters above sea and their grapes mature with about ten days delay.This confer to their white grapes a greater finesse and acidity, even in the warmest years. The soils are all of volcanic origin (metamorphic granite) with a remarkable mineral endowment.

All the vineyards are fenced to protect them from the wildlife (hares, wild boars and wild goats), which is particularly attracted to the ripe grapes.
