Biodynamic: Renzo Masi - Fattoria di Basciano

Fattoria di Basciano is the estate owned by the Masi family since the beginning of 1900 and is one of the rising stars of Rufina. The Masi family has made wine for three generation in this quiet corner of Tuscany. Today they farm approximately 30 hectares and and are also experimenting with biodynamic and natural wine practices.

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 300 mtrs. on sea level, lying on a very stony soil, locally known as "Galestro". The micro-climate is ideal for the ripening of the grapes. It is dry and breeze, marked by scarcity of rain and a remarkable range of night and day temperature in summertime. 

In the last fifteen years the ownership has been engaged in a program of researches for the highest qualità level. These efforts leads to invest consistently, by plantíng new vineyards and building a new winery for the vinification and the ageing in barrel of the wine.
