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.
