The Terre di Siena (Lands of Siena), as tradition, are extraordinarily notorious thanks to their controlled and guaranteed denominations of origin, such as Chianti Colli Senesi and Chianti Superiore, which are produced by the winery of Castel di Pugna.
Viticulture plays an essential role in enhancing its rural landscape and is the core of the activistes of the Azienda Agricola Castel di Pugna, together with welcoming and accommodating guests in its Residenza d’Epoca or its Agriturismo near Siena, where you can admire the silhouettes of Torre del Mangia and Duomo.
Our Chianti cellar is situated on the beautiful hills of Siena. At the Azienda Agricola Castel di Pugna, native grape varieties as Sangiovese, Ciliegiolo and Colorino, are cultivated according to the most recent technologies. For suppurting an important project called Senarum Vinea, this winery is the keeper of seven ancient native grape varieties, which were cultivated around Siena during earlier times.
The ancient five red grape varieties called Mammolo, Gorgottesco, Canina, Prugnolo Gentile and Giacchè, together with other two ancient white grape varieties called San Colombia and Procanico, are destined to become, after accurate micro vinifications, the so called “Il Vino di Siena” wine.
The vineyards grow on a land which, being rich in clay, maintains the humidity that is needed to guarantee a constant quality in wine production and allows the plants to survive during the most scorching-hot, dry summers.
