Soil Specificity

The soils in Toscana are formed from Pliocene and Pleistocene marine sediments, and from Quaternary alluvial and lacustrine deposits. The region is quite hilly, progressing inward to the Apennine Mountains. Here, many vineyards are planted on the higher elevations of the hillsides to benefit from a cooler weather. The soils composition lie mostly on clay, with a great level of nutrients and organic matter.

A Passionate Lineage

Tenuta Il Palagio is located in Figline Valdarno, eastern side of the Chianti Classico area. The domain is owned by Trudy Styler and Gordon Sumner ( Rock Star Singer Sting) and comprise 350 hectares overlooking the Tuscan countryside, mostly dedicated to forest. The estate has been producing wine for centuries but was like a ruin when Sting and his wife bought it in 1999. The vineyard has been converted to biodynamic farming under the supervision of Alan York, and consultant wine maker Paolo Caciorgna, one of the leading experts on Sangiovese.
