THE WORKING FARM
The main objective, pursued strongly by the farm, is maximum respect for the land. Cultivations follow the principle of integrated agriculture which has a very low environmental impact. The rooves of the farm are covered with a 50 kw photovoltaic system, that reduces the carbon dioxide emissions and make it electrically autonomous.
The main varieties of olives, Correggiolo, Frantoio, Moraiolo and Leccino, are grown at Podere Cisternella. Olive picking is strictly done by hand and the crates are stored for a maximum of 48 hours. Within these 48 hours, the pressing is done in one of the nearby mills, using the controlled temperature, continuous cycle pressing system.
The farm's vineyards extend to 5.000 square metres. Sangiovese and Merlot are the vine types that are grown here. The winemaking is done in the farm's cellar where the wine is kept, partly in barriques and partly in steel barrels.
