The vineyards are located at 320 m above sea level south of the town of Montalcino, on land that slopes downwards towards the Maremma area.
The ideal composition of the terrain (clayey and sandy) and highly favourable micro-climate results in high quality grapes perfect for making the full-bodied Brunello di Montalcino. The altitude, position and characteristics of the soil all combine to ensure that the grapes reach full maturity with all of the complex aromas they then give to the wine.
The Quercecchio estate has 16 hectares of vineyards, half of which are dedicated to the production of Brunello di Montalcino wine. The other half grows grapes for other local DOC and IGT wines. The estate also has 10 hectares of olive groves with various varieties of olives: leccino, Olivastro and Moraiolo.
The rest of the estate is covered with woodlands, cultivated fields and open pastures. estendono seminativi, boschi e pascoli.
