The south facing vineyards at Tenuta Licinia are composed of galestro, a rocky clay marl that is indigenous to the Appenines and found in the best plots of the region. The vines are planted at a density of 6200 vines per hectare and trained with spur pruned cordon and guyot. Each parcel of the vineyard receives an unintrusive and tailored treatment. Tenuta Licinia produces wines that are vineyard focused - the quality of the grapes, not the winemaking, is the source of the quality of the wine. All work in the vineyard is organic.
There are four vineyards at Licinia, for a total of only 5.5 Hectares of vines, each with its own soil and character.
1. Lutra - Cabernet Sauvignon
2. Naceus - Cabernet Franc
3. Glarea – Our Merlot and Cabernet sauvignon terraced vineyard
4. Aera – Our Petit Verdot vineyard.
