Feudi Barone Spitaleri

Following the vision of 1852 only French vines are grown on the fertile vulcanic soils of Feudi Barone Spitaleri. On slopes formed by a 1607 lava-flow, in two close plots where Felice created terraces and roads, over 100km of stone-walls, and built an efficient Chateau solely dedicated to the wine production, Feudi Barone Spitaleri grows only highly-selected and sophisticated varieties instead of the indigenous yet more productive ones. Today Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are still the perfect match for the 800m’s climate and 80 Hectars of generous soil forming the Castello di Solicchiata vineyard.
