Quercia al Poggio is situated in Monsanto, in the municipality of Barberino Val d’Elsa. Owned by the Rossi family, the estate extends over 100 hectares of woodland nature reserve where vines and olive trees are organically cultivated.
Vineyards, located on a hill 400 metres above sea level, are planted mainly with Sangiovese, with some newer plantings of local Ciliegiolo, Colorino, Canaiolo and Malvasia Nera grapes. Soils are mainly limestone and clay with sections of schist and calcareous-clay galestro. The hill’s aspect ensures plentiful sunlight while the woodland setting encourages a healthful and diverse site.
