Vallepicciola, in the countryside of Castelnuovo Berardenga, is a winery that extends for 265 hectares, among woods, vines and olive trees that give life to an excellent Tuscan extra virgin olive oil from the moraiolo, leccino and frantoio varieties.
The hectares of vineyards are 85 and include the king of Tuscan vines, Sangiovese and international varieties such as pinot noir, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, petit verdot and chardonnay.
The vineyards of Vallepicciola, distributed over the hilly areas to the left of the Arbia river, have been carefully selected according to the composition of the soils and areas in which clays, calcareous marls, bluish marls, tuff, sandstones and sand alternate.
And this is precisely the quid in more of Vallepicciola: the great variability of the soils that gives wealth, elegance and uniqueness to the wines that are born here.
