If were to summarise the philosophy of work that guides us here at Roccapesta in a few words, I would say that we tirelessly seek the best expression of Sangiovese, while respecting the environment. These words summarise much of what we want to achieve in this corner of Tuscan Maremma, in Scansano. Research comes from the curiosity of always wanting to try something new. A new farming technique, a new clone of Sangiovese, a new method of making wine. Respect highlights the boundary that must not be overstepped, the line at the centre of the road that we wish to travel. Respect for the environment, respect for the terroir, respect for typical local characteristics and traditions, respect for our employees and respect for our customers. Lastly, the term “expression” has not been chosen by chance: it is the Sangiovese that is expressed in our wines, the Sangiovese that, combined with the characteristics of our terroir, enhances and blends its personality with the minerals and flavour of our land.
