Tuscany is a land of history and traditions, with unique landscapes, hills and clay gullies, vast expanses of vineyards and olive groves alternate with small villages or typical stones farmhouses.
In this triangle, between Florence, Siena and Arezzo, surrounded by the mountain ranges of Pratomagno and the Chianti hills, we find the Vald’Arno, an area dominated by clay, recognized as an area of excellence already in 1716 with the Bando of Cosimo III de’ Medici.
Between the Agna river near the village of San Giustino and the ancient Etruscan and Roman road CassiaVetus, along the Setteponti road, La Salceta is totally embedded and integrated into the land. Since our foundation, the estate has been conducted in compliance with the rules of organic farming, using the latest knowledge and technology for the enrichment of the soil and the self-defense of the our grapes and olive trees.
We work in the most complete respect for the soil, which is always protected by a layer of herbs, both selected and spontaneous. This natural filter protects from the drying force of the sun and from the compacting and erosive force of rain and wind and at the same time enhances the activity of organisms naturally present in the earth.
La Salceta is one of the promoters of the DOC Vald’Arno di Sopra, witch aims to protect and promote the wine and viticulture of the quality in the Vald’Arno.
