Crognolo is named after a wild bush, Cornus, that grows abundantly on the estate. Made predominantly from Sangiovese, a traditional Tuscan variety, that produces elegant and age worthy wines and a small part of Merlot, Crognolo brings together the class of Sangiovese with the complexity bestowed by aging in oak.

Orma is the perfect assemblage of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, grape varieties that have found in these surroundings their perfect habitat. These gently-sloping hills boast deep soils composed largerly of pebble and clay; with very little sand, cool soils that resist the heat of recent seasons, while the nearby Mediterranean tempers the heat coming from inland, cooling the summers and softening the winters. The grapes are hand-picked and vinified according to the dictates of tradition: a fermentation of some 15 days, followed by maceration, with frequent punchdowns and pumpovers, followed by a full year spent in French oak barriques.
