Wines of Tuscany: 2 tasting itineraries
Among the hills surrounding Castiglione della Pescaia, the area that goes to Tirli and Ampio is a land of wines. Here you will find some of the most famous wineries of Maremma where you can book tours, tastings, dinners in the cellar and much more. Today we want to let you know two wineries that will make you appreciate the best that Tuscany has to offer.
Just 10 Km from Castiglione della Pescaia, in the heart of Tuscan Maremma, there is Cacciagrande Winery. It extends for about 40 hectares, of which 18 are home to vineyards while 4 are dedicated to olive. Here there are two wine itineraries: one is represented by the Sangiovese wine, which perfectly embodies the ancient Tuscan tradition; the other, more open to innovation, stands out for international vines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Viognier. The hot and dry microclimate and long macerations are the secret of the excellent quality of these wines, of great character and elegance. Here you can enjoy guided tastings and visits to the vineyards.
LE MORTELLE FARM
Near Castiglione della Pescaia there is also Le Mortelle farm, managed by the Antinori family. This area, recently emerging in the Italian wine landscape, offers the perfect location to enhance the characteristics of cultivated varieties. This farm is distinguished in particular by its great focus on eco-sustainability. Here flora and fauna are perfectly preserved; the farm has about 15 hectares of organic orchard and in the vineyards it is practiced precision farming, targeted plant protection and natural fertilization. The packaging itself reflects the eco-sustainable choice, with lightweight glasses and ecological materials.
The 166 hectares of vineyards cultivate mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, but there are also plants of white berry varieties such as Vermentino, Ansonica and Viognier. In the farm you can book tours and tastings.
