The nature of the territory and the layers of human intervention are like two fibres that determine the consistency of a fabric, an ancient fabric, that continually renews itself, if we let it flow through our fingers, appreciate its grain and discover the secret logic of its tangled weave. Behind an approach of this type there is, above all else, respect.
The vineyards extend for about twelve hectares, unfolding along a gentle hilly area, sloping down to the plain, as if to embrace the two preeminent characteristics of the most inland part of the Maremma.
In the far-sighted vision of Gabriele Gadenz, internationally renowned agronomist and oenologist, the unique environmental conditions of Poggio Spinelli must be expressed in the most elegant and individual way in the wines. His meeting with the Parrini family and his careful reading of their vineyards form the origin of the two intuitions on which the vision of Le Stadère is based.
Vine varieties: Sangiovese, Pugnitello, Alicante, Merlot, Petit Verdot
The first aims to enhance the vocation of this terroir for Sangiovese, with its eight different clones, coming from material carefully selected at the end of the 1990s in Tuscany; the second is to rely on two vines that are less well-known than the Sangiovese, but are equally rooted in the territory, to bring to light rarer nuances of its character. They are the Pugnitello, an ancient native of Grosseto area and the Alicante, brought by the Spaniards in the 17th century, at the time of the State of the Presidi.
The edges of this fascinating design are finished with two wide-ranging Bordeaux cultivars, Merlot and Petit Verdot, two threads that contribute decisively to the weaving in of international wines with a clear mark of the territory.
A rifinire i bordi di questo affascinante disegno, è la scelta di dedicarsi anche a due cultivar bordolesi di ampio respiro, Merlot e Petit Verdot, due fili che contribuiscono in modo decisivo alla tessitura di vini internazionali con un chiaro marchio del territorio.
