|The area of production of the DOC wines of Tuscan Maremma is located in the southern part of the Toscana region and covers the whole province of Grosseto, one of the largest Italian provinces. The rolling hills of the inner land outline a typical Tuscan landscape, where grapefruit and olives are grown, raising north west towards the Metallifere Hills, and north east towards the Amiata Mount, a volcano now dormant for centuries. On the offshoots of the Volsini Mounts, east of the Fiora river, lie hills and plateaus characterized by volcanic soils and typical small villages perched on the tuff rocks. The coastline, with its vast pine forests and areas of extraordinary naturalistic importance, makes the completion of the Maremma landscape.|
A land waiting to be discovered, in some areas still uncontaminated, rich in history and culture, between hills and sea.
A land devoted, with the ancient knowledge and talent of its people, to vine growing and wine production since the time of the Etruscans.
This is the Tuscan Maremma.
|An area with a great variety of climatic, pedological and morphological characteristics, which characterize and make unique the wines produced on these lands: volcanic soils east of river Fiora, in the Pitigliano and Sorano districts; mainly marl and marl-pelite rock formations on the hills between rivers Fiora and Ombrone; clayish and clay-loam soils in the upper Maremma, on the low hills of the coastal areas and on the alluvial plain.|
These are but a few examples that represent the variety of the Maremman terroir: no other territory in Tuscany can offer such a wide choice of wines as the Tuscan Maremma, with indigenous vine varieties (like Ciliegiolo, Canaiolo nero, Alicante, Sangiovese, Vermentino, Trebbiano, Ansonica, Malvasia, Grechetto, Pugnitello, Aleatico) and international ones (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Viognier, Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Petit Verdot).
So, the Tuscan Maremma is not just Sangiovese, as growing just one vine variety is the case for many regional wine-producing districts. The Sangiovese vineyards represent less than half of the 8.550 hectares cultivated in the Maremma, so leaving room for other traditional varieties, like Vermentino and Ciliegiolo, and for international ones like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.
