L'Arco is in Vinci, a small medieval village where the famous Leonardo de Vinci was born. 20 kilometers west of Florence in the heart of the famous Chianti region. Its soil is very fertile, containing deep, resilient clay. This provides a good skeleton which nourishes the vines, enhancing their natural peculiarities. The estate covers approximately 250 acres. Half of these are vineyards which include vines of innovative varieties for the area, introduced over the years through some different experimental phases. The richness of this land represents a microcosm of incredible varieties. The soil takes on many different shades of color: white pumice, the tuff which goes from yellow to garnet red, and black volcanic stone. All these morphological differences contribute to create a unique combination of earth. Within the estate one can also find 50 acres of olive groves with 6000 trees for the production of extra virgin olive oil made with Montalbano IGP olives.
