Company



The company is located in the offshoots of the Maremma, on the border with the Siena province, in the area of the DOC Montecucco, between the DOCG Brunello of Montalcino and the DOCG Morellino of Scansano and it is granted with the privilege of ideal conditions for the growth and maturation of the Sangiovese. The farm lays on the top of a natural amphitheater facing south-west, 350m above sea level. The farm owns 52 hectares, of which 25 hectares are dedicated to vineyards, 2 hectares host olive trees, while a wood of live oaks and cork oaks occupies the remaining 25 hectares.



On the top of the hill, dominating and enjoying a breathtaking sight, there are the wine cellar, which is a modern structure with the traditional wings-shape leant over the vineyards hills and the historical homestead-barn compound, today used as elegant farm-holidays and restaurant.Inside the wine cellar, next to the technical premises, there is a modern wine tasting centre and the wine shop.


Philosophy



Since the Medieval time, on the roads that from Maremma lead towards the inland, the “Imposti” represented a place where wayfarer and dealers could take a break and get refreshments and could change the cattle or get a hot meal and a glass of wine. At the beginning of 2000, one of these old homesteads, that in the centuries had become a bare pasture, stole the heart of two Lombard friends, thanks to its hillocks facing south and the unspoiled nature of the surroundings.

In the belief that the land and climate of the high Maremma represented a high valued union, the 5 years conversion of the old pastures and arable lands into neat vineyards begun, along with the project to entrap in a bottle all the character of this strong and generous land, warm and sometimes rough, that give itself slowly to those who have the patience to stop and listen to its silence. Our philosophy aims to keep a strong and essential bond between the Tuscan land, its people and the rural tradition.

Our wines are dedicated to those people…


The Farmhouse



The winery includes an agriturism farm holiday, a result of a careful restoration of the ancient farmhouse.



It is composed by 2 buildings: La Locanda (“inn”), obtained from the old barn, and 8 rooms.



Our farmhouse is stylishly furnished and managed with special attention to reception and proposal of local dishes.



Antico Casale Impostino is located in an ideal position covering 25 hectares of vineyards and 25 hectares of bushes alongside a nice private pond.



On the external area there is a parking and marvellous garden with a wide variety of plants and flowers.



Two big crackling braziers will keep you company, while you relax enjoying yourself surrounded by total darkness under a starry sky.



Our superb panoramic swimming pool stands out in this magnificent natural amphitheatre of unrivalled beauty.



Our green olive trees and vineyards will be a pleasure for your eyes as you take breaks between laps in the swimming pool cuddled by natural colours and sounds.



The Cellar



Modern and technological structure, it reminds the tradition, with its classical wing-shape that embraces the vineyard hills. Production takes place at the ground floor in order to facilitate the grape movement, while the refinement and storage are entirely carried out in the basement to take advantage of the natural soil thermoregulation.



The wine-making process occurs in stainless steel tanks thermoregulated and in truncated-cone shape oak vats; for refinement Barriques and Tonneau of French oak are used.


The Vineyards



Reclining on the side of the hill, with the surrounded by the woods. On the homestead’s property the ground is homogeneous and it is mostly made of sodium clay interspersed with rough calcareous deposit. The slope and the soil composition guarantee a great drainage, granting to the plants the ideal growth conditions, conferring flavor and concentration to the final product.



The climate of Maremma with the strong and clear sun and the position on the hill, assuring strong thermal excursions even in the warmest periods, along with the good influence of the sea breezes, provide the ideal conditions for the perfect maturation of the grapes.

The Vineyards Names



Poggio: Il più elevato, povero e particolarmente ricco di scheletro, conferisce alle viti, nel tempo, una rusticità che consente alle uve di esprimere tipicità, struttura e potenza aromatica. Da qui nasce il nostro Sangiovese più potente.

Laghetto: particolarmente ricco d’argilla e di riserve idriche, tali da garantire continuità nel percorso di maturazione e concentrazione delle uve conferendo armonia e morbidezza.

Macchie: un suolo polimorfico, con vene argillose alternate a porzioni più drenate che hanno consentito l’impianto di una varietà specifica come il Vermentino.

Pinetina Cerretina Panettone: la porzione più calda, asciutta e mediterranea dell’azienda con un suolo molto permeabile; ne derivano uve di particolare concentrazione e mineralità.
