Our organic vineyards at Tenuta Maryamado are situated in some of the most privileged of positions in the Florentine area for growing Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes and are governed by the DOCG Chianti Colli Fiorentini. Growing along a spectacular, rolling ridge-line that extends from the Church of Santa Cristina to San Quirico in Collina, our grapes benefit from uplifted marine Pliocene soils dating millions of years old which are characterised by a rich combination of neo-native clays, sands, and a predominant presence of pebbles. Several distinct microclimates and various exposures complete the unique terroir of our vineyards.
Respect for the environment is a guiding philosophy for everything we do in our winemaking process. This starts with a keen eye and careful management of the vineyards' soils where we are limiting work in order to maintain a sustainable, mutually-beneficial relationship by increasing biodiversity and soil microorganisms, which in turn adds to healthier vines and better wines. Above all, we are focused on producing excellent wines which are a direct expression of the intense combination of our history, territory and love for our work.
