The Renieri estate extends over about 128 hectares in the southern quadrant of Montalcino, on slopes that face Monte Amiata. 30 hectares of vineyards are planted at an elevation of 350 - 420 metres, their exposures forming an arc from south-east to south-west. The soils are predominantly volcani, with calcareous soils and stone interfigured with red clay and tuffs. The old vineyards were pulled and new vines were planted in 1998, at a density of 6,000 vines per hectare. Keeping yields at just 1 kg. per vine, the equivalent of one bottle of wine, entails the least stress per plant and ensures perfectly ripened fruit and optimal quality. The principal grape variety at Renieri is obviously Sangiovese.
