Located in the Maremma, Il Civettaio is only 25km from the Tyrrhenian Sea. In the early 1990s Gregorio dell'Adami came to Civetella Paganico and planted the fields and built the winery. He saw that this little micro-climate would produce fantastic grapes and allow him to easily implement the organic practices that he believes will produce the best fruit and best preserve his land. Il Civettaio is certified organic. They use natural yeasts and do not filter. All berries are harvested by hand and sorted at the winery. Wines from this part of Toscana can be so beautiful and that is what we found at Il Civettaio.
