Vine growing method used in the company.
Method of rearing vines used in the company. Through particular cultivation techniques, it is possible to modify the growth of the vine.
In this way we can obtain different “forms of farming” , in order to obtain a greater quantity and better quality of the grapes.
The method of weeding of the vines adopted by us is called “Double Guyot” which consists of the presence of two fruit vines instead of one.
Our vineyards divided between sangiovese and ciliegiolo , have an extension of about 5 hectares and there are 3800 plants per hectare and each stock counts 12 gems.
The soil on which they grow is hilly, of medium texture with a high percentage of skeleton, a very important factor that gives considerable freshness to the grapes.
The work in the vineyards is carried out with the utmost care, scrupulously respecting the cycles of nature, moreover the company is in biological conversion and the fertilization is carried out using only organic substances.
All the production phases (care of the vineyard, vinification, bottling) are closely followed by Emanuele Papini and his mother Sabrina with the advice of the oenologist Giacomo Cesari and Attilio Pagli.
Another solution of breeding of vines that we use only for Sangiovese is called “ spurred cordon “: a few months after the beginning of winter rest, the plant is pruned leaving only one or two branches that will be kept for four or five years, keeping only four spurs equidistant from each other.
The subsequent prunings will consist in renewing the spur year by year.
