Vigneto Altura

Vigneto Altura, Italy – Organic and natural

Striving to maintain the sensitive ecosystem and landscape of the Isola of Giglio off the coast of Tuscany, the Carfagna family dedicate their time to nurturing their small vineyard. They principally work with the Ansonaco grape; a native grape variety that at one time covered the island but in recent times had largely diminished. They also grow Sangiovese, Grenache, Canaiolo, Malvasia and Moscato grapes.  They work manually on their vines which overlook the sea, towards the islands of Montecristo and Corsica. Work is undertaken without the use of herbicides or insecticides and minimal addition of sulphur or copper. Currently unrepresented.
