About the Producer, Le Spighe :
The farm Le Spighe is immersed in the Maremma countryside and extends for 36 hectares used for native vineyards, wheat and a small part for the cultivation of vegetables.
The wines produced, both red and white, come from grapes selected by them and that by nature find in Maremma an area suitable for ripening, always followed by experienced staff and respecting nature.
The products of the farm Le Spighe are the result of the passion for quality food and for our land.
From this comes the desire to make known the genuineness and the many qualities of wine production. Their vineyard extends for 3 hectares with a prevalence of typical Tuscan vines, such as: Sangiovese, Vermentino, Ansonica, but also Merlot, Montepulciano, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Syrah, Fiano and Moscato.
The atmosphere here is one of genuineness and simplicity, typical aspects of living in the countryside.
