The sustainability

In harmony
with nature

Sustainability is for us an everyday choice that embraces the entire life cycle of our wine, from soil to bottle, through an integral approach of respect for the territory and in the harmony with Nature. Thanks to the expertise of Ruggero Mazzilli, agronomist pioneer since the eighties of the concept of “bio-logic” (smart-organic agriculture), we observed and analyzed the ecosystems that surround our estates, taking care of the biodiversity and fertility of the soils and working on the grassing of our lands.

The starting point is the care of the land. In 2020 we have begun with the process of organic conversion of the estates “Terrabianca” in Radda in Chianti and “Il Tesoro” in Massa Marittima, both properties will join Colle Brezza already organic certified for over ten years. Caring for the territory also implies preserving the existing vineyards and enhancing the distinctiveness of the terroirs. Our intervention model is based on two principles: exclusive use of elements of natural origin and the minimization of human interventions on land to recover biodiversity and vitality functions.

Today, our soil is alive: dark, odorous and fertile.

The soil

Sustainability
in practice

Harvesting
by hand

We chose to harvest by hand picking, in this way we reduce the stress for the plants and safeguard the integrity of grape cluster, protecting the quality of the wine. We limit the use of agricultural machinery to a minimum by moderating CO2 emissions and preserving soil integrity.

Customised soil interventions

Our vineyards are monitored in real time, thanks to small meteorological units placed between the rows of our vines, we are detecting fundamental climatic data: from the temperature of the air and the soil to the humidity up to the wetting of the leaves. All information is transmitted to the company allowing us to carry out rapid, and targeted interventions.

Soil and water management

Throughout the year we work to optimize water resources and avoid erosion by seeking a balance between water, heat, and soil. In the vineyard we work to favor the accumulation of autumn and spring rainfalls and defer its availability during the summer season. At the same time, we act on the vines to reduce water demand through grassing, which stimulates water and mineral retention capacity, soil fertility, microbiological vitality, and local biodiversity.
