Podere San Cristoforo was founded in 1901 by a family of farmers that carefully selected this land for its ideal vine growing conditions: the vineyard’s fresh and stony soils – the result of foliation from the mineral-bearing hills of Gavorrano – and the constant marine breezes are crucial to the healthy ripening of the grapes. Today, the vineyard is owned by famous winemaker Lorenzo Zonin.
“A wine that can be recognised at first sip: maybe not always as perfect technically or as constant year in, year out, but undoubtedly with more marked character.”
The wines are deep, modern and 100% estate-bottled with biodynamic grapes only. They are unfiltered, unfined and fermented with native yeast.
