terroir

The elegance of a unique territory

All the vineyards of the Castello di Bolgheri estate are located next to the homonimous hamlet and the cypress lane and are part of the Bolgheri DOC.

The vines rows are perpendicular to the sea and benefit from the afternoon ventilation during the hot summer days. The soils are predominantly clay and sand rich in pebbles with sub alcanine pH.

Altitude: 70m over the sea level

Exposure: south-west

Composition: sand-clay, limestone pH 8

Bolgheri biodiversity

A precious soil
It is in unique area that thanks to the soil variability our wines are born

Since 1996 the traditional grape varieties Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Trebbiano and Malvasia have been substituted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot: the main varieties established in the DOC regulations.

Since the very beginning of the Castello di Bolgheri estate, the philosophy has been to produce wines, focusing on the work in the vineyard and aiming to maintain the expression of the terroir in the cellar.
