The unique climate of the Maremma, in combination with its soil, sunlight, continuous ventilation and its proximity to the sea, all make La Chimera d’Albegna a distinctive winery. The hot sun permits for an exceptional ripeness of the grapes on the vine, the best in Tuscany. Perfecting what nature provides, we make use of modern technology during production.
Wine making has been in our DNA for over 3000 years. We continue to make wine as it once was, by combining experienced winemakers and hard work.
