The territory

L’Italia è il Paese con la più vasta biodiversità al mondo: scenari unici, dal mare alla montagna, dall’ambiente fluviale alle più alte vette, dai borghi storici abbarbicati su impervi crinali a spiagge di sabbia e litorali di scoglio, fino a strepitose città d’arte.
Il Monticello vanta una posizione particolarmente fortunata.

Si colloca infatti tra Pisa, città toscana ricca di storia e cultura, e gli incantevoli borghi delle Cinque Terre, e alle sue spalle si stagliano maestose le Alpi Apuane, custodi del celebre marmo bianco di Carrara.

The vineyards

The winery’s vineyards are located in the hills surrounding the town of Sarzana and are all characterized by a constant presence of clay and especially skeleton soil. In order to best manage this difficult soil, specific operations such as green manuring, planting of different crops and mechanical tillage are necessary to help the expansion of the vine root system, reducing soil erosion and maintaining a good percentage of organic matter.

Special attention is paid to the winter pruning technique – mainly guyot – and spring pruning, also referred to as “green” pruning, through which an optimum balance between growth and production is sought.

Finally, grape ripening monitoring, from flowering to veraison, as well as subsequent tasting of the grapes and chemical-physical analysis, allow to organize the harvest making the most of each plot of land.
