Campo alle Comete
Campo alle Comete estate is located at the foot of Castagneto Carducci, in province of Livorno. The property extends over 17 Ha, 14.5 of which are vineyards and 2.5 hectares are olive trees. The grape varieties Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Petit Verdot, planted between 1993 and 2007, are all written into the Bolgheri DOC registry. The winery practices sustainable farming, and in 2016 they started the conversion of the vineyards to organic. The type of soil is mostly loose/sandy with some clay and a part of limestone. The mild temperatures, constant winds and significant temperature fluctuactions between day and night create ideal conditions for a balanced growth of the vines and an excellent grape maturation. The result are healthy grapes, favored by a lower attack of botrytis and diseases. Their aromatic, intense scents and their ripe, fine tannins characterize the wines and create a good pleasantness even at an early age. The estate was acquired in February 2016 by famous Feudi di San Gregorio winery in Tuscany. The name Campo alle Comete is an antique toponym from this area, which disappeared over time. The whole representation of Campo alle Comete, with its magical name (Cometa means “guiding star” or "Comet" in Italian), wants to bring the consumer into a dream world. Nicoletta Ceccoli, an illustrator from San Marino and winner of various art awards, has designed not only its logo but also a dreamlike picture, exhibited at the winery, from which they have also taken the fairy images represented in the labels. The director of Campo alle Comete is Jeanette Servidio. Together with oenologist Stefano Di Blasi, she has created 4 high quality wines within the DOC Bolgheri and IGT Toscana appellations.
