FIZZANO

The Fizzano Estate was purchased in 1984 and consists of a hamlet dating back to the 11th century, and about 61 hectares of land, of which about 36 are planted with vines (Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Colorino) and 3 with olive groves. The main feature that makes the Fizzano vineyard unique, in addition to a prevalently southern aspect, is the presence of sand in higher concentrations than in other neighbouring soils. These conditions endow the wines grown here with elegance and power, but also freshness and minerality. The “Relais Riserva di Fizzano” is a developed hamlet consisting of six buildings in which 22 flats and a gourmet restaurant have been created.
