The Canneto vineyard, on the western slopes of Montepulciano, near the wonderful church of Madonna di San Biagio, has a long tradition of wine making. Since the purchase the current Swiss owners have restored the buildings with great respect for the rich wine growing tradition. A new wine cellar has been built, new machinery and equipment installed and the vines and olive trees have been pruned and when necessary replaced.
The vineyard covers some 48 hectares, of which about 20 hectares are planted with vines. Fifteen hectares are registered for the Vino Nobile. The vines are grown on moderately heavy, pebbly mar soil between 350 and 400 metres above sea level. The vines are raised on predominantly south west facing slopes in a horizontal spurred cordon system. A further four hectares of land is devoted to the cultivation of olives for extra virgin olive oil.
