Company as unique as the terroir from which its fame derives: rich in stones and watered by the Arno, which guarantees significant temperature ranges in Summer and the presence of mists in Autumn, favoring the development of noble rot on the bunches left to overripe. Riesling, Sauvignon Gris, Semillon and Chenin blanc thus find their preferred environment, guaranteeing results of absolute importance in terms of freshness, minerality and structure right from the entry wine, Podere Sassaie, passing through the three monovarietals, and finding the absolute pinnacle in Pourriture Noble. Under the management and ownership of Alessandro Fonseca, the company has moved between organic and biodynamic regimes since the beginning.
