Fattoria di Faltognano is located in the hills of Montalbano, between Florence and Pisa. Bought by descendents of the Bardzky Comparini family around 1,000 A.D, the vineyards are planted downhill towards the town of Vinci, where the sandstone and calcareous soils found on the slopes blends with the sandy clays from the lower Arno plain. Given the longevity of the estate, the vines at Faltognano have naturally evolved over time and are now singular clones perfectly suited to the area’s soils and climate. The estate vineyards are planted at different altitudes, effecting ripening periods. Each parcel is harvested at the optimal peak of ripeness, handpicked, destemmed and vinified separately.
|Fattoria di Faltognano sits on the south facing slopes of the Montalbano hills, between Florence and Pisa. Owner Roberto Comparini's family has owned this estate since around 1,000 A.D. The uniqueness of the property lies in the continuity of its ownership and traditions. The vineyards lie downhill from the winery, closer to the town of Vinci, where the sandstone and calcareous soil of the slopes blends with the sandy clay of the lower Arno plain. One of the most unique facts about Faltognano is their vines. For generations all grafting occurred within their property, creating singular clones perfectly adapted to their soil and climate. Due to the varying altitudes and ripening periods, the grapes from each vineyard are hand-harvested and individually fermented.
