The ‘Azienda Molino di Sant’Antimo’ consists in about 40 hectares of land facing south to south west from about 200-250 metres above sea level down to the river Orcia. On one side stands Mount Amiata, and when the ‘maestrale’ wind blows, it brings the smell of the sea and the coast, On the other side the long ridge protects the land from the cold winds from the north and north east. The land is a mixture of clay, marl and crushed stone rich in minerals. The vineyards have been developed gradually.
The modern cellar is situated in the woods nearby, it covers about 800 square metres and so the wine is produced in the best possible conditions. Vinification takes place in modern steel barrels of 1000 Ql. The area reserved for the aging process houses large French oak barrels from Alliers and barriques of French and American oak.
