Organic Wine

The limestone clay soil in the Monti in Chianti area and the perfect position of the vineyards are the essential factors that provide depth and elegance to Montebello Toscana igt wine.
For some time the company has been engaged in the study and recovery of the ancient varieties typical of these areas through the cultivation of historic vines: Mammolo, Ciliegiolo, Pugnitello, Colorino, Sanforte, MalvasiaNera, Canaiolo and FogliaTonda.
Indigenous yeasts and natural fermentation allow a harmonious blend of the varieties.
