Practicing "Integrated Agriculture" using only organic fertilizers and disinfectants for organic farming. The terroir present layers of original rocks, in particular galestro marl, but also rich in limestone. The vineyards are located in beautiful landscape, exposed to the sun from morning until evening, also very well protected from the north breezes. A strict selection, during the vegetative cycle, allows the grapes to mature well before being strictly hand-picked.
The estate, an old farmhouse from the 1700s, has been completely renovated, maintaining the original structure of the Tuscan style. The cellars and vinification area have been completely modernized. While further prestige has been given to the ageing, a traditional subterranean cellar, reserving a place under the main farmhouse for the obligatory refinement in the bottle before release. The complete commitment of the Loia-Palazzo family embraces the entire production cycle, from the processing of the vineyards, to the vinification and aging, to the marketing of their wines.
Grape Varieties 100% Sangiovese

Aromas of exotic spice, blue flower and menthol waft out of the glass. Ripe and chewy, the full-bodied palate shows dried cherry, orange zest and dried mint set against tightly wound close-grained tannins that leave a firm finish.
