We produce from organic grapes coming from our Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Ansonica and Vermentino vineyard, Montecastelli Protected Geographical Indication, a new Indication born in 2006. Our oil is also registered in the Tuscan IGP consortium. They are excellent prizes for our care to our land.
Obsessed by quality since the vineyard
Owned by the Castaldi family since 1952, the Company is in the heart of the Val di Cecina, an area of Etruscan, Roman and Medieval history. We believe in the heritage of our land and in its values, trying to preserve them for future generations. We respect the environment in which we no more than guests. Quality in our bottles is realized in various guises like for examples, the refinement of farming practices to a more quality- focused approach-
For years we have been cultivating a small vineyard facing north-east, on sandy, saline, mineral clay soil. Each row has chestnut poles and a rose plant at its beginning, and a breathtaking panorama where Volterra stands out. The plants are grown organically and the bunches chosen one by one (we only use our grapes to make wine).
In our search for quality, we try to enhance the seasonal characteristics, letting each bottle reflect each vintage. Wine fermentation occurs naturally, we only use indigenous yeasts.

The Winemaker says...
Statiano: IGP Montecastelli
It is 100% Sangiovese.It is a Wine with a clear and strong temper, with a strong personality. A young and nervous Sangiovese, able of expressing his complex identity. On the nose the floral and fruity notes are wrapped in a slight spiciness creating a perfect olfactory balance. On the palate, it shows ample structure
