An innovative and eclectic nature

Belguardo

In the heart of Tuscan Maremma

On the hills between Grosseto and Montiano and next to the Tyrrhenian Sea, the Belguardo Estate is one of the most important businesses in the region.

Purchased by the Mazzei family in the middle of the '90s, the property covers and overall area of 80 hectare, half of which is devoted to special vineyards.

A very special terroir, which is the result of many years of research, and on which an intense vineyard replanting program was started immediately after the purchase with a precise choice of the varietals and clones.

BELGUARDO

The Vineyards

The micro climate is strongly influenced by the vicinity to the sea, with strong thermal currents in particular during Spring and Summer. The soil is characterized by rich structure with Alberese and sandstone rock.

80 hectares of property

34 hectares of vineyards

Dominated by very fine gravel resulting from the breakdown of sandstone and the limestone-clay mix known as alberese, the Belguardo vineyards are proof, once again, of the maxim that poor soils make great wine. Facing south and west, they benefit from their proximity to the sea, which balances out their exposure to the sun’s rays with constant cooling breezes.

Between 100 and 180 meters a.s.l.

Vines

Rossi: Cabernet, Sangiovese, Alicante, Syrah
Bianchi: Vermentino

A multifaceted winery

A very special microclimate, influenced by thermal currents due to the proximity of the coast


The property is provided with 34 ha of planted local vines such as Sangiovese, Alicante, and Vermentino, international vines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, and others are presently being developed experimentally, with plant density of between 5.500 to 6.600 plants per hectare. The entire area, located at an average height of 50- 180 m above sea level, has Sout/South-West exposure and slopes that vary from 10% to 19%. The soil is characterized with Alberese and sandstone rock, and texture that varies from medium mix with good water retention capacity, to ligth sandy provided with high draining capacity.

The influence of Tyrrhenian Sea

The micro climate is strongly influenced by the vicinity to the sea, with strong thermal currents in particular during Spring and Summer; it is characterized by low humidity, less rain than the average in the area and a high rate of evaporation and plant transpiration.

The diverse combination of soil-climate conditions allow for the cultivation of quite different grapes, yielding wines with high complexity and concentration, but also extraordinarily elegant and aromatic; so much so that Belguardo was able to establish itself as one of the reference standards of Maremma.
