The Doglio vineyard, where the vines are grown, is located in the heart of Italy in the region of Umbria. The ancient viticulture tradition here traces back to the Etruscans who began growing grapes 3,000 years ago. Sitting atop a steep hillside nearly 2,000 ft above sea level, the vineyard benefits from cool air and excellent sun exposure due to its high elevation and northwest position.
The vineyard was planted in 2008 with two main varieties, Sangiovese and Syrah, with only a few rows of Merlot. The soil is mostly a mix of clay, loose natural substance and minerals. Every single variety is harvested and processed separately with respect to the proper maturation point.
