The Dream Come TrueB efore Massi di Mandorlaia was acquired in 1998 , the estate was utilized as grazing land . The development of wine production started from scratch . Titti and myself begun converting the bare land into vineyards but always respecting the existing hedges, dry-stone walls and woods .
Massi di Mandorlaia is a sloping hill with optimum exposure South/South-west at an elevation between 320 and 200 m (1050 to 660 ft) . Soils in the lower part of the Estate are sandy-loamy (locally called “terrenello”=light soil)) while in the upper part of the estate they are more sandy-clay (locally called “terren-grosso”= heavy soil). In both cases a good drainage is assured by abundant rocks and stones.
