The 58 hectares of vineyards are divided into four distinct areas: Pietradonice in Castelnuovo dell’Abate, Cetine in Sant’Angelo in Colle, Cerretalto and Fiesole.
The vineyards of Casanova di Neri express the territory and the microclimate of the region which together with the care for each agronomist results in a fruit of optimal quality.
The company’s production of Brunello di Montalcino is divided between three different labels to best represent the unique characteristics of the area.
The Fiesole vineyard, the oldest on the farm, is just north-east of Montalcino; produces exclusively Brunello di Montalcino.
In 1986 the Cerretalto vineyard was acquired. A natural amphitheater near the Asso river. The position of Cerretalto east of Montalcino and its unique terroir justify the separate bottling of this cru. On the opposite side of Montalcino and to the south-east, near Castelnuovo dell’Abate, is the Pietradonice vineyard planted with Cabernet Sauvignon. Finally, the Cetine vineyard: 25 hectares on a bucolic hill near Sant’Angelo in Colle. with south-south-east exposure. Its location, unspoiled nature, and the alternation between day and night temperatures, result in excellent quality for Brunello di Montalcino.
