  • The Tesoro Estate

In Maremma,
Massa marittima

Tesoro
estate

Caressed by the sea breeze and by Mediterranean temperatures, Il Tesoro rises in an extraordinary frame of nature, historical villages, and fossil sites. A rich, charming, and precious context. Thanks to a favorable microclimate and to fertile lands, Il Tesoro is the ideal habitat for olive groves and vineyards that we cultivate according to the principles of organic agriculture.

The Tesoro estate

The jewel
of the upper
Maremma

Midway between the land and the sea, rises “Il Tesoro”. The estate, few kilometers far from the medieval fortress of Massa Marittima, is in the heart of the Upper Maremma and of the Tuscan Mining UNESCO Geopark. Here, the sea, wetlands, woods, fossil sites and little villages alternates, creating a peculiar setting where natural landscape merges with human history.

Set in an evocative hilly landscape, exposed to the sea breezes and cradled by the typical Mediterranean temperatures of the upper Maremma, the Tesoro estate represents the avant-garde soul of the “Arillo in Terrabianca” project, which focuses on natural winegrowing and on the rediscovery of soils and agricultural products.

The Tesoro estate

The terroir and the vineyards

The property has a heterogeneous agricultural grid, alternating rows of vines and centuries-old olive trees. It covers an area of approximately 115 hectares at an altitude of up to 140 meters above sea level and it is characterized by different types of soil (stone and clay) rich in minerals such as iron and magnesium. The 36 hectares of vineyards are spread over different heights with a predominantly southern exposure, and benefit from special climatic conditions - proximity to the sea, constant ventilation, high temperature fluctuations - that allow the cultivation of healthy, fragrant, and slowly ripening grapes.

Today at the Tesoro estate, along with the Sangiovese grapes, find fertile ground the international varieties (Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon) and the most recent plantings of white varieties, such as Chardonnay, Viognier and Vermentino.
