A hill drenched in light, “bright”, a stretch of vineyards with two enormous oaks right in the middle: we are at the Fattoria Querciarossa (Querciarossa Farm), between Magliano in Toscana and the sea of Talamone.
An enchanted place, inhabited since the dawn of our history. Remains from the Bronze Age till the Rinaldone Age have been found here: the so called Tomba dell’Arciere (Archer Tomb) is next to the cellars of the farm. The Etruscans dug a necropolis in the limestone rock next to the vineyards, leaving behind wonderful red coloured paintings.
The Romans also built in these places; remains of a whole Roman farm, with the manor house and other farmhouses, were found. Then the last and, perhaps, most fascinating discovery: the remains of an ancient Etruscan vineyard.
This land, so rich in history, must keep on living in 2000: here the Querciarossa Farm was born with its cellar and its vineyards, where wines are produced that, from their name and structure, recall the history and strength of this territory.
Located between Magliano in Toscana and the sea of Talamone, in the shadow of two large centuries-old oaks nestled between the lares, the vineyards of Fattoria Querciarossa stretch out, on a hill full of bright light from which you can see the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Near the vineyards there are the remains of an entire necropolis excavated by the Etruscans in the limestone of Maremma, where they left many of their paintings with a characteristic “cinnabar red” color.
But as evidenced by the fascinating discovery of the remains of an ancient vineyard, also dating back to the Etruscan period, this hill has always been the perfect place for the cultivation of vines.
It wins low and long for lighthouses so that all the scents of the Maremma land are enclosed in the berries of the precious grapes. The constant tillage of the soil ensures excellent spraying of the plants and excellent ripening.
