NThe family-run business was established with great enthusiasm in 2003 with a view to restoring the area, which had come to be known as ”L’Abbandonato” (The Abandoned One), to its ancient splendour. To this end, we dedicate considerable time and effort to our vineyards, fully aware that good wine depends entirely on good vines. PODERI FIRENZE is situated close to the Orcia Valley, between the provinces of Siena and Grosseto. The Siena side is cultivated with the red grapes used to produce Brunello wine, and the Maremma side with the red grapes used for Montecucco wine. The vineyards appear situated in a crater, although the valley is actually the fruit of the erosion of tiny streams. This location protects the plants from the north winds and grants them the benefit of a gentle sea breeze, which in springtime keeps them ventilated and in summer safeguards them against excessive heat.
