The Masi Family at Fattoria di Basciano

Fattoria di Basciano

Since the beginning of the 20th century the Masi family has owned the Fattoria di Basciano estate. The Masi family have been making wine here for three generations. It is located right in the heart of the Chianti Rufina area, on thee top of a hill overlooking the Argomenna Valley on one side, and the right bank of the Sieve river on the other. The vineyards are at an elevation of almost 1000′ above sea level, lying on a very stony soil, locally known as “Galestro”. The micro-climate is ideal for the ripening of grapes and olives. It is dry, with light breezes, marked by scarcity of rain and a remarkable range of night and day temperature in summertime. The 75 Ha property is divided by vineyards (35 Ha), olive orchards (20 Ha), and forest land (20 Ha).
