WINE PRODUCTION

The vineyards are located on the slope of the Chiani Valley between the small historic center of Carnaiola and the stretch of Murogrosso bridge. The exposure, the regular slope and the nature of the soil give the place a set of agronomic characteristics particularly favorable to the cultivation of the vine and unique in the area. To exploit these particular conditions, after the first Orvieto DOC vineyard in 1970, other PGI vineyards have followed in the last twenty years.

The white and red grapes obtained from 12.5 hectares of DOC vineyards are partly transferred to a common Orvieto cellar, partly processed in the own cellar to produce high quality Umbria IGP wines. In the white grape vineyards the vines are Grechetto, Procanico, Malvasia, Chardonnay, Vermentino; in the red grape ones Sangiovese, Cabernet, Merlot, Canaiolo Nero.
