Amaranto by Podere San Cristoforo
cassis - bright - black cherry - earthy
Podere San Cristoforo is characterized by the constant presence of breezes that blow in from the sea, keeping the grapes healthy and moderating the high summer temperatures. This "wind", then, is a fundamental factor in the optimum ripening of the grapes and in the complete development of their aromatic substances. The soil is also of vital importance: it is made up of Aeolian deposits of medium texture, originating from the foliation of the mineral-bearing hills of Gavorrano, giving a stony terrain with a highish clay content.
The property stretches out over 45 hectares (110 acres), of which 15 hectares (37 acres) are planted with vines, 2 hectares (5 acres) with olive trees and 20 hectares (50 acres) with cereal crops and sunflowers.
