"How to nurture the vine and create a balanced habitat that allows the vine to best express itself? This is our work!"
"The first question a winegrower must ask himself is: What kind of wine will this earth give me? Striving for the balance of the plants and the earth, we think of the winery as a living organism that encompasses vital powers that are not limited to a system of production. With the first vinification, one starts down a path of discovery and learning. This is an approach that changes a person. By working in harmony with the earth, we can allow the wines to express their territory fully. Even though the work of winemaking requires human intervention, we can speak of a "natural" transformation, during which nothing is removed, and nothing is added."Follow Montesecondo
The estate has two vineyards, planted with Sangiovese, Colorino, Canaiolo, Trebbiano, Malvasia and Cabernet Sauvignon but each of them has a very different terroir. One is located 500 metres above sea level, with vines growing from rich limestone soil. This makes fresh and crisp wines with sharp acidity. The other terroir is lower and warmer thanks to the clay and marl soil. The wines from these grapes tend to be more mature and fleshy.Montesecondo Location
