Vinoble is proud to be the importer of Castello ColleMassari Hong Kong. The estate was established in 1998, and its first vintage produced in 2000. The vineyards are in the Montecucco DOC area in Upper Maremma - a territory ideal for producing Sangiovese. Situated between the DOCG areas of Brunello di Montalcino and Morellino di Scansano in the foothills of Mount Amiata, it is oriented towards the Tyrrhenian coast. It enjoys a favourable microclimate of consistent ventilation and strong thermal exposure. The estate extends over some 1,200 hectares, with 110 hectares of vineyards, 60 of olive groves and 400 hectares of mixed crop. The remaining area is woodland, and the estate is surrounded by a state forest, covering some 1,200 hectares. In the steep and hilly vineyards vines are trained to Cordone speronato or Doppio Guyot, yielding about 6 tons per hectare. During the harvest great care is taken in selection of grapes, first on a vibrating table and secondly on a tapis roulant. The viticulture and agriculture of the estate is run according to the criteria of organic farming, guaranteed and certified by ICEA.
