Suvereto territory is perhaps the most important cradle of Etruscan civilization. It is a natural geological extension of Elba Island and contains many of the same minerals which contribute to the quality of the wine. The distinguishing quality of the wine produced here has allowed it to compete on an international level sine the 1980’s. The revolutionary techniques spawned from the nearby Bolgheri, saw the planting of new vineyards with varietals such as, cabernet, merlot, and syrah while leaving space for the traditional sangiovese, all nicely rolled up into a modernized enology.

Territory of Suvereto, the pulsing heart of the DOC, is with Notri and San Lorenzo being the most esteemed for quality wines eventhough much of the territory has become home to new vineyards.

The superlative red wines are a match made in heaven for the local Suvereto cuisine, which tends towards wild boar as it’s forte and succulent greens, like the violet artichoke or local spinach varieties all grown in the Val di Cornia.

Grapevines find an ideal habitat in Maremma Toscana also in terms of natural sunlight. Ripe fruit, subtle complexity, crispness and a pleasant mouth feel are common characteristics of the wines from Maremma. No other area in Tuscany can offer such a wide variety of wines, also due to the essential characteristics of the grape varieties grown here.

In the 90’s, cultivation of indigenous varieties like Ciliegiolo, Canaiolo Nero, Alicante, Sangiovese, Pugnitello, Aleatico, Vermentino, Trebbiano, Ansonica, Malvasia and Grechetto was expanded to include foreign grape varieties such as the Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet franc, Merlot, Syrah, Viognier, Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Petit Verdot, which found a new, hospitable home in Maremma. Therefore, Maremma Toscana is no longer synonymous with Sangiovese grapes.

The result is a more “innovative” range of Tuscan wines, capable of satisfying different needs and palates, from reds made with a single variety or a blend of foreign grapes, like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot, or indigenous Sangiovese, Ciliegiolo and Alicante-based reds.
