.. the authentic character of the Tuscan Maremma ..
our vineyards convey the complex variety of characteristics belonging to our territory

Consisting of about 300 hectares, the Fattoria il Casalone estate dedicates 16 to high quality wine production.
A project of great research and study, which meant that we could identify the best varieties to plant.

At the beginning of the 1960s we had 12 hectares of vineyards. With pride, we can say that we were among the first to experiment in the area. As well as on traditional clones (Sangiovese, Trebbiano, Ansonica), on Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Vermentino, which overtime, have created a flawless union with our territory influenced by the proximity to the sea.

After years of research and in-depth analysis, in 2000 we replanted the vineyards. We introduced Viognier among the first in Maremma and eliminated Trebbiano and Ansonica, as they produced wines which were not quite up to our high quality standard.

Sixty years after the birth of our ongoing research project on the quality of clones, paying particular attention to native varieties such as Vermentino, we can say that we are very satisfied with the results obtained from our vineyards at each harvest.

Today, of these 16 hectares, 6 are dedicated to Vermentino and Viognier grapes, with the remaining 10 cultivated with Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot grapes.

uve Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc e Petit Verdot.

The vines have a plant spacing of 2.2 metres x 0.8 metres and a high density of 5,680 plants per hectare.

The selective yield is equal to 70 hundred kilograms of grapes per hectare.

The training system is a spurred cordon with 4 fruiting buds per plant.
The reduced number of buds per plant, the high planting density and the low fertilisations allow to achieve the right balance between leaves and fruit. This obtains greater concentration and richness of aromas, polyphenols and sugars.
