The area surrounding the estate has unique climatic condition, due to its proximity to the sea as the crow flies and the absence of natural barriers. The valley that hosts the estate has an amphitheater-like shape with a different microclimate than other sub-areas of Chianti Classico. In this natural amphitheater, weather fronts coming from the North usually stop at San Donato and they do not cross Colle di Pietracupa, while weather fronts coming from Siena remain trapped in Poggibonsi area. Consequently, the estate is characterized by little rainfall, compared to the surrounding area. Constant winds are a natural defense for the vines and they allows us not to exceed with treatments based on copper, thus safeguarding the soil.
