About PODERE DEL VISCIOLO:
We are located between Sant' Angelo in Colle and Castenuovo dell'Abate, on a plateau facing Val d'Orcia and Mount Amiata. In 1950, my great grandfather Zefiro fell in love with Montalcino and acquired the rural house dating back to the 1700s and the land surrounding it, and started to plant the first vines. Today, that tradition continues to live through my wife, my daughters and myself.
Life here flows in contact with nature among Brunello vineyards and centuries-old olive groves, and all aspects of cultivation are personally managed by my family. Here is where my family and I want to live: that is why respecting the environment is so important to us and only organic and biodynamic agriculture is practiced. My aim is to continue to reduce human intervention on the vines.
Grape fermentation starts spontaneously thanks to indigenous yeasts that are naturally present on the skin of the grapes; it takes place in concrete tanks, the wine then rest in large traditional oak barrels in our cellar.
