The elegance of a unique territory
All the vineyards of the Castello di Bolgheri estate are part of the Bolgheri DOC. They are located in the surrounding areas of the homonymous town and on both sides of the cypress lane.
The vines' rows are perpendicular to the sea and benefit from the afternoon ventilation during the hot summer days. The soils are predominantly clayey and sandy, and they are rich in pebbles with sub alkaline pH.
Altitude: 70m above sea level
Composition: sand-clay, limestone pH 8
A precious soil
It is in unique area that thanks to the soil variability our wines are born
Since 1996 the traditional grape varieties Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Trebbiano and Malvasia have been substituted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot: the main varieties established in the DOC regulations.
Since the very beginning of the Castello di Bolgheri estate, the philosophy has been to produce wines, focusing on the work in the vineyard and aiming to maintain the expression of the terroir in the cellar.
