Vineyards

The Polini family have always been convinced that organic is more a lifestyle than a production method.
They believe in the importance of this philosophy to leave the land in better condition than they found it, and to leave their children the opportunity to continue living and working on it peacefully.

Organic wines reject chemical synthesis products for fertilization and for the defense against weeds and parasites and adopt only natural preparations, even in the cellar.
There is an ethical reason in this choice, but also a refusal to approve adverse modernisation: the fewest possible interventions means letting the wine express its most authentic characteristics.
There is a very strong commitment to protect their land, the people who work there and the consumers who choose their wines.

The company is located in Carassai, a small village in the province of Ascoli Piceno, just 15 km from the Adriatic Sea and 30 km from the Sibillini Mountains National Park. A predominantly hilly area, but with the highest percentage of mountain areas in the entire Marche region, which also includes the highest peak, Mount Carrier at 2476 metres. All this generates a strategic and natural meeting point between the sea breezes and the thermal winds of the Apennines, which together contribute to obtaining wines with a very intense aromatic bouquet.
The family grow the main native varieties such as Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Passerina and Pecorino.
The vineyards extend over an area of ​​25 hectares, divided into the two different valleys that divide the municipality of Carassai: the Val Menocchia with south-east exposure, and the Valdaso with north-east exposure.
The altitudes vary from 300 to 250 metres above sea level, while the soils are predominantly clay in the Aso river valley and of medium texture, sometimes sandy, along Val Menocchia.
The distribution of the vineyards, playing on different altitudes and slopes, favours the ripening of the grapes in a natural and balanced way.

Inside every Le Canà bottle there is the earth, the sun, the rain and the wind because the wine collects everything it receives and everything an excellent wine needs.
