Lo Scopiccio

Lo Scopiccio

On the southeast facing side of the hill are the Cabernet sauvignon, Cabernet franc and Sangiovese vines. The soil is similar to the Cortaccio vineyard but has less silt and more drainage. The vines take longer to find their footing and will need an additional year before reaching full production.
