Fabbrica is a new wine estate in the area of Pienza, Tuscany. It doesn’t have a long history behind it, but is led by a highly creative team, passionate about contemporary art, and is free of any heritage or tradition. Located in the heart of a new appellation, Tuscany’s Orcia DOC, between Montalcino and Montepulciano, Fabbrica forms an estate of 35 hectares of vineyards which have been farmed organically since the outset (officially certified). Varieties grown are Sangiovese, Syrah, Vermentino, Viognier, Roussanne and Marsanne. Soils are mainly limestone and clay, the vineyards being at an average altitude of 470m above sea level, forming a natural amphitheatre of vines around the winery. The varietal approach is brave and different, with an avowed aim not to copy what has been made before, but to experiment and produce unique and original wines from an original, unique and rising winemaking area. They are wines of immense character that are hugely rewarding.
