THE VINEYARD
IS THE COMPANY’S TRUE ASSET

For Pellegrini, respecting Petrognano’s identity and history means focusing not only on its local wines, namely Sangiovese, Trebbiano Toscano and Canaiolo, but also adapting the vineyard’s activities to its different microclimates. It has deep-running medium-texture soils with different exposure levels, and they are surrounded by hills with altitude ranges of 180–250 m. The biodiversity of the company’s microclimates and the varying vine ages create a rich ecosystem that makes for the wines’ stylised personalities. The company has chosen to place its faith in these three varietals because they have the ability to best express the area’s wine-making potential: Sangiovese, the symbol of Italian viticulture and the base of Tuscan reds, and Canaiolo and Trebbiano Toscano, which are inextricably linked to the region’s authenticity and flavour. So-called international varietals have been eradicated in favour of new clones and massal selections of local varietals, save for 2 hectares divided between Merlot and Syrah. This choice was a result of the unique features that these wines have produced over the years.
