Salicutti, Toscana

The Estate

The Estate Podere Salicutti covers 11 hectares of land comprising vineyards (around 4 hectares), olive groves (around 1.5 hectares and woods (3.30 hectares).
The vineyards which benefit from an ideal exposure (ranging from South/South-East to South/South-West) and altitude (420 m above sea level) and from a dry mild climate are well sheltered from the cold North winds. The land is farmed with organic methods following very simple techniques, which increase the fertility of the soil with the organic nutrients from stable manure and green-manuring with leguminous crops and cereals. The humus provided by natural substances increases the biological activity of the land and helps the absorption of other nutrients
