Ridolfi

Tenuta Ridolfi lies on the slope of a hill in the very heart of Tuscany, 300 metres above sea level near the famous “Brunello Road”. It comprises 30 hectares of land, 11.4 of which dedicated to Brunello vines, 6.5 hectares to Chianti Colli Senesi and 1 hectare to Rosso di Montalcino, plus 700 olive trees of the Correggiolo variety.

All the Ridolfi vineyards are on the North-East slope of the Montalcino hill. The clones used are mainly suited for long ageing. Vines that are more than 15 years of age are trained with the spurred cordon system using the two bud pruning with four spurs technique. Vines planted after 2013 are trained using the simple Guyot technique. The bunches are thinned three times throughout the season: during the setting phase, the veraison phase and at the end of the ripening phase.

The vines are treated exclusively with copper and sulphur, the products allowed in organic cultivations. Insecticides are avoided and natural methods are used to control insect damaging the grapes and vines. The vineyards are fertilised using certified farmyard manure exclusively.
