The high quality of the wines produced in the area of Montalcino was already known at the time of the Etruscans, who, on these hills, had developed active settlements. The name "Tenuta Poggio Il Castellare" given to the company takes us back to the historical roots of the place: to the remains of an ancient residential area with the remains of houses and towers on top of the homonymous hill next to the vineyards. The vineyards of the company extend on sunny slopes overlooking the evocative landscapes of the Val d'Orcia one, of Mount Amiata the other, and finally the Pian Bossolino vineyard to the mystical vision of the centuries-old Abbey of Sant'Antimo. Poggio Castellare extends over its vineyard area of eight hectares. The path in the cellar allows you to discover the production processes. The itinerary is divided into spaces for the fermentation of the wine, then 30 HL barrels and barriques that cull the refinement to the bottled wine warehouse.
