The Borgo Macereto farm extends for about 20 hectares on the hills that dominate the area between Mugello and Valdisieve in the municipality of Dicomano (FI). Of the estate, 6 hectares are intended for vineyards, 3 for olive groves and the remaining divided between meadows and coppice.
The agricultural reality was born in 2014 when the Foscarini family took possession of it and decided to dedicate a large part of it to the vineyard, recovering the original 3 hectares of vineyards of Sangiovese and Gamay and planting in 2016 new Pinot Noir vines, as well as a variety of whites aromatic including Riesling, Incrocio Manzoni, Moscato, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier, to give a note of originality, freshness and elegance, in addition to the inevitable Sangiovese, basic for the production of Chianti Rufina wines in which the area is part of the company.
Already from the beginning the idea of producing quality products deriving from organic agriculture with high-level bottles falling within the DOCG and IGT parameters was clear. The training systems used are the spurred cordon and the Guyot, with planting patterns suitable for achieving low productivity but for the benefit of high quality levels.
The Macereto farm continues to pursue the strategic enhancement of Sangiovese thus guaranteeing the typicality and quality that binds it to the territory, but at the same time experiments with original products, evolving fermentation and aging techniques.
A modest quantity of Extra Virgin Olive Oil rigorously cold-extracted of excellent quality is produced from the Olivet of the Macereto Agricultural Company, consisting of about 400 plants including Morellino, Leccino and Frantoio, especially reserved for direct sales and agritourism complex.
