Our lands

Fattoria Poggio Capponi meets all the conditions in terms of soil, altitude, exposure and microclimate, creating suitable conditions that achieve a high level of viticulture.
The property extends over 350 hectares on the Montespertoli hills, 34 of which are vineyards and 35 are olive groves. The altitude varies from 250 to 270 meters.
Summers are hot with high temperature peaks and at night the summer breeze coming from the hinterland gives a temperature range causing the temperature to drop, regulating the ripening of the grapes.
The winters are mild and the rains occur from November to May, this allows the creation of water reserves, essential for feeding the vines during the driest season.
The soil extends over several hills, for this reason it is varied, it goes from clayey to gravelly soils, in fact there are different levels of maturation and exposures, from the same vine on different soils we get more results, this helps during the most extreme years.

Making a good wine means designing a natural environment, a terroir and taking care of living beings that are not part of it.
The green vision of Poggio Capponi extends to the care of the vegetation that surrounds the farm, more than 200 hectares of woodland. Among the practices used there is green manure, a vegetable fertilization which consists in cultivating some species capable of restoring nitrogen to the soil through the roots, this operation improves soil fertility.
Furthermore, post-fruit defoliation causes the grape to get used to the sun and temperatures gradually, making the skin thicker and aerating the bunch, this limits the creation of fungi and diseases and the consequent use of chemicals.
Relying only on rainwater and soil humidity, Fattoria Poggio Capponi takes the quality of its wines to the highest level by producing contained yields of efficient quality that give a unique character to the labels.

The 34 hectares are dedicated to several varieties: Sangiovese, Foglia Tonda, Alicante Bouchet, Canaiolo, Syrah, Colorino, Merlot, Ancellotta, Malvasia, Vermentino, Chardonnay and Trebbiano.
Aided by the long winemaking history, the goal is to divulge the potential of the territory and of the company through the wines, adopting a contemporary style, emphasizing elegance, freshness, cleanliness and aromatic complexity.
Specifically, importance is given to the enhancement of Sangiovese and the management of tannins. The Tuscan identity is always evident as well as the constant quality. The wood remains important to give structure and evolution, never in an intrusive way, the fruit and the softness of the wine thus remain the fundamental elements.

Our History

“It began in the 1930s, when my grandfather Giuseppe Rousseau Colzi, decided to buy the farm that for centuries had been the place of refuge of I Capponi, a well-known Florentine family.
It is the story of my father Giovanni and my brother Michelangelo, who together decided to carry on my grandfather’s dream by investing in wine and oil production.
A story of passion, of dedication. It is My story, I am Gioconda Rousseau Colzi. Of my roots, my values, my ideals. The story of this land and its vines.
Of Petriccio, our Chianti Montespertoli Riserva, which we have been producing for over 30 years to bring the essence of this land, to the tables of those who love wine.
Born from this land. Harvested with our own hands. Poured to be shared.”
