From Castellina in Chianti to… Maremma. After the success of last years’s “Val delle Rose presenta…”, the Cecchi family is proposing a number of initiatives aimed at valorizing ecology, sport, music, art and culture on their Maremma estate.
This summer, “Val delle Rose is not only wine. We want to make our estate in Maremma available in all of its beauty,” says Andrea Cecchi. This year, they are proposing trekking in the vineyard with 3 different trails of varied difficulty and length.
Each trail is named according to the vineyard it passes through: Morellino, Litorale and Poggio Leone. There will be a resting area with tables and benches placed in panoramic areas. The trekking is included in the tour packages and includes wine tasting. It is free of charge but requires a reservation.
In addition to physical activity, you can also have an artistic experience thanks to a list of appointments organized with national and international musicians. The theme will be “musical re-interpretation”.
After visiting the vineyard and wine cellar, there will be a tasting of wines paired with typical food at sunset. The show begins at 9 PM, according to the following calendar:
– Saturday, June 10, the Cavalieri Quintet (with a re-interpretation of sound tracks and jazz)
– Saturday, Juy 29, the Morellino Classica Festival will present a jazz quartet made up of the trio, De Toro and the popular saxophonist, Tim Garaland;
– Saturday, August 19, for the first time, the Accademia Chigiana will leave Siena for Maremma with 4 percussionists who will offer suggestive contemporary harmony;
– Saturday, September 2, will be the turn of the Orchestrina Maccheroni Swing with a repertory of italian and international songs with a “retro” taste and a swing atmosphere.
– On July 15, the installations of master Antonio Barbieri will be inaugurated and sometime in August, a film chosen by the Schermo dell’Arte Film Festival will be projected.
The Tenuta Val delle Rose is located in a zone rich with landscape and wild beauty, with archeologica sites and thermal areas. It is an ideal place to enjoy the treasures of the land.
Here, in addition to the summer program, one can always organize a vineyard tour, a visit to the wine cellar and reserve a wine tasting or typical lunch.
The Tenuta is located in Poggio alla Mozza (Grosseto), and was bought by Luigi Cecchi in 1996. The property, at that time, was made up of 25 hectares of vineyards which have since been replanted and amplified and now consist of more than100 hectares.
Among the new grapevines you can find varied selections of Sangiovese together with a few hectares of Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon e Colorino and an area dedicated to Vermentino.
The main wine is Morellino di Scansano DOCG, produced in vintage and reserve. The Cecchi family is counting on the production of Litorale, a Vermentino di Maremma.
Today the cellar consists of 4,000 square meters of production area and 2000 square meters dedicated to hospitality.
