The name “Madre” comes from the homonymous property, which has always been part of the Poggio Antico estate. This location is facing south-southwest and it is well protected from the northern winds and consequently from the risk of late frosts. Its position – particularly favorable – and its average altitude (about 380 meters a.s.l.) ensure a perfect ripening of the grapes. The soil is rich in clay and stone and guarantees optimum drainage.
Madre vineyard, of about 11 hectares, has been planted partially in 1997 and partially in 2001, with mainly Sangiovese and, on a smaller surface, with Cabernet Sauvignon. The vine density varies from 5,000 to 6,000 vines per hectare.
