The Aldobrandesca vineyards are located precisely on the slopes of the spur of tufaceous rock on which Sovana is perched, immersed in a breathtaking natural and archaeological panorama. The property was acquired by the Antinori family in 1995 and extends over 193 hectares (some 480 acres) on a gently sloping terrain of volcanic origin with a tufaceous sub-soil. It is situated at approximately 200 meters (660 feet) above sea level.
