Owned by the Castaldi family since 1950, Statiano extends over a vast area in the heart of the Val di Cecina, an area of ancient Etruscan origin, mad up of small clustered hill towns and medieval villages perfectly preserved. We produce cereals, seasonal vegetables, all bio certified. but above all wine and extra virgin olive oil. All following strict biological rules.
We produce Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Vermentino, Montecastelli IGP, a new quality indicator that was introduced in 2006. our wine is produced in our own small vineyard and is certified IGP. Also our olive oil is registered with the Tuscan IGP Association; a good recognition of our work and our land.
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 are guests, the environment made of a succession of rolling hills and ancient medieval villages. For years we have grown a small vineyard exposed to the north east, the plants are grown organically.
We are not alone in giving value to our territory, the Val di Cecina. From this year the TGI Montecastelli has become an association. The Statiano farm is also associated with the Italian Federation of Independent Winegrowers, which promotes its wines every year with a market in December at the Piacenza Fair.
For years we have been cultivating a small vineyard facing north-east, on clay-sandy, saline and mineral 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, of course we only use our grapes to make the wine. We take care of our vineyards and manage our plants with the most modern wine and agronomic techniques. The soil and micro-climate of our areas allows us to obtain wines with unique chemical-physical and organoleptic characteristics. We produce Montecastelli TGI wines obtained from the grapes of our vineyards.
We produce Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Vermentino, Montecastelli Typical Geographical Indication, a new Indication born in 2006. Our wine produced in our vineyard is GTI certified. Our oil is also registered in the Tuscan GTI consortium. A high recognition to our care and our land.
