History and Terroir
An archipelago of terrestrial islands in the municipality of Piglio, a series of small and medium-sized plots each with its own character that together are a succession of cultivation and nature. We have vines, olive trees, medicinal herbs, nuts and a vegetable garden. Each island in the archipelago (cru or contrada) is a unit in its own right, one with the surrounding environment and its soil. Each of them reveals itself over the years through nuances that define its character and together make up a mosaic that we helped build. It produces wine from four of them (San Giovanni, Cercione, Collepasso, Vignali), oil of five (Costa Ilia, Collepasso, Fontana di Grano, San Giovanni, Mignano). In some islands such as San Giovanni or Costa Ilia the plants are very old and have reached a total adaptation to the environment. The officinal herbs of different species complete the flora cultivated in association with fruit plants and wild herbs. Around each there are woods, other fields, meadows.
