La Regola vineyard is ideally situated in the heart of Tuscany just 5 kilometers from the Tyrrhenian Sea in an area that has always been renowned for the production of excellent wines. Located in Riparbella in the Cecina Valley, the vineyard lies in the Montescudaio DOC wine region that abounds in vineyards, olive groves and cypress trees so eloquently celebrated by the great Italian poet Giosuè Carducci who was brought up in nearby Bolgheri.

Originally an important Etruscan settlement that flourished for many centuries, the lower Cecina Valley with its temperate climate, fertile soil, sea breezes and plentiful sunshine was favoured for the cultivation of vines which produced a full-bodied wine which the Etruscans  kept in Anforae, many of which were unearthed in the area.
At the time, the Cecina Valley was part of the territory of Volterra, one of the most important of the Etruscan city states  especially from the 4th century BC., today one of the most important Etruscan sites in the world.

“The special morphology of the area, with the Cecina river flowing through it and protected on both sides by a strip of wooded hills full of cork oaks, creates a temperate micro-climate with the temperature dropping low enough at night to give the grapes particular aromatic expressivity.”

Nature

The 20 hectares of land that includes flat land (50 m above sea level) and hilly land (100-200 m asl), a few hectares of which are now being converted to organic farming.

In addition to growing native varieties such as Sangiovese and Vermentino, the estate now also grows white and red French varieties, of which Cabernet Franc stands out, and together with a small percentage of Merlot and Petit Verdot makes up the estate’s most important wine, Cru La Regola. The estate also makes a Trebbiano, Malvasia and Colombana passito wine and a classic method sparkling wine of special finesse and long mouth-feel, made from Gros Manseng. With its new eco-friendly cellars powered with clean energy, the firm’s goal is to transmit the values of a unique local area, where nature has come down from the Etruscans to the present day uncontaminated, and expresses a constant, respectful balance between man and the environment.
