In the heart of Tuscan Maremma, the Gavorrano Plain sets the stage for a quiet and peaceful existence where uncontaminated nature rules. With its rich cultural and historical heritage—from the Etruscans to the Romans, and into the present day—the land including and surrounding Tenuta Fertuna’s 370 acres has been nurtured in accordance with nature, creating an amphitheatre of vineyards, mixed with other crops such as olive trees, in a sunny idyllic atmosphere made for growing varietals such as sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and syrah. The brightness of the sky, the sun, the special soil, and the sea and mountain air currents create the perfect setting for winegrowing.
Maremma is a strip of Tuscany referred to by many as the Italian Medoc, an area of great wine-making potential which is bringing exceptionally high-quality wines to the market and fast becoming a principal area of exploration of some of the most important investments in the Italian wine industry. Here, beside autochthone sangiovese, have been planted international vines such as cabernet sauvignon, merlot, syrah, and petit verdot, creating some truly extraordinary wines and also what the dear departed Giacomo Tachis has rightly called “deluxe oenology.” Tenuta Fertuna faces the path of “Antica Via Aurelia” traced by Romans in the third century BCE, which allowed Rome to establish and consolidate its rule.? The Gulf of Follonica, Castiglione della Pescaia, and Punta Ala are the frame completing a dream context.
