Set on a gentle sunny and luminous slope, the vineyard extends across 14 hectares. It is divided into two parts: the Old Vineyard (Vigna Vecchia or “Vignone”) and the New Vineyard. The first one, was planted in 2004 for a total of 10 hectares and the second one in 2012 with an extension of 4 hectares. We cultivate indigenous vines such as Sangiovese, Alicante, Vermentino and Aleatico and international varieties such as Syrah, Merlot and Viogner.
The form of rearing is mainly spurred cordon and guyot with about 5,500 vines per hectare. It is produced with a low charge of buds per strain and a limited production per hectare: about 70-80 quintals.
All the property extends across 80 hectares. The majority, 60 hectares, is covered by forest: Mediterranean scrub and particular coppice. Recently an olive grove of 600 Leccino, Frantoio and Corregiolo cultivars has been recovered with Pendolino plants as pollinators.book a visit
The Winery, the beating heart of the Estate, was built in 2014 on two floors, and is located right in front of the vineyard, as this proximity allows us to start working on the grapes immediately after harvesting, to avoid traumas and premature fermentation. The cellar is located in the lower level of the building where the vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks while the aging occurs in barrels, barriques and earthenware jars. In addition, a reserved area has been designed and completely dedicated to the vinification of the line of wines without added sulfites.
Tenuta Casteani is a sustainable company!
The company has a 700 kilowatt photovoltaic system (since January 2012, 2,441 MWh of energy was produced and 1.587 tonnes of CO2 were saved).
We are used to collect rainwater, we use pellets for the production of heat, for years we have been making compost and we recycle. The vineyard is in biological conversion and we are expecting to receive the organic certification in the next two yearsbook a visit
