Poggerino means little hill and this vineyard sits directly on top of a little Poggio.
The 3rd generation of owners of Poggerino have a fanatical attention to detail in their vineyards, insisting on no chemicals being used at all while achieving the highest concentration of flavour and ripeness in each grape. (One of the ways of protecting the vines at Poggerino, and ensuring the ground keeps its nutrients is to plant fava bean plants between the vines!).
Every step of production in handled by the family, with nothing left to chance.
Of the 11 hectars under vine here, 10 are exclusively dedicated to Sangiovese and just one to Merlot.
