Villa Sonia Winery is located in the municipality of Greve in Chianti. It stands on a natural terrace overlooking the valley of the Greve stream, a gently sloping southwest-facing plateau sheltered to the northeast by Mount San Michele, which offers natural protection from for the cold northerly winds, and partially exposed to warm westerly breezes blowing off the Tyrrhenian Sea. This is the heart of Chianti country, near the boundary separating the provinces of Florence and Siena. The soil here is of Eocene origin and comprises prevalently sandstone and sand formed by the break-up of the bedrock, in particular “galestro” shale, whose exfoliating structure, crumbly surface, permeability, pebble content and wealth of trace elements ensure the vine’s balance, producing wines of great character.
