Wine and Vineyards
The vineyard at Peruzzo extends for about 5 hectares, on the flattest part of the farm, where it was planted in 1973. Today it produces about 400 tons of Sangiovese IGT Maremma Toscana grapes, which for the most part are sold to major wineries in the area. A small part of the production is however intended for the vinification of our own wines along with a small quantity of white grapes.
The vineyards at Peruzzo
The vineyard at Peruzzo, which from above looks like a great big green lawn, was planted in 1973 using the Tendone system. In those days Maremma was still unknown as a land of wines and indeed it was thought that due to its dry climate it was unsuitable for the cultivation of vines.
For this reason at Peruzzo it was decided to adopt a tendone plantation, which was already widespread in Algeria and Lazio (particularly in the area of Latina), which lent itself to a more simple cultivation and greater mechanization of the processing procedure and harvesting.
The harvest, which begins each year in mid-September, is done by hand with the help of trailers pulled by tractors into which the grape pickers throw the grapes which are then taken and upturned onto the trucks which go directly to the cellar so that the process is done on the same day.
A small part of the grapes of harvested at Peruzzo (about 20 tons) is used for the vinification of our own wines at a nearby winery that also handles the bottling in bottles of 0,750 litres each.
With them we produce two reds and a white, they are good genuine wines that are a great accompaniment with various Tuscan dishes and they are named after the streams that cross the farm.
