Nicola & Matteo Cantoni

Fattoria Fibbiano is a family-run farm. The whole family has lived and worked here since 1997. Giuseppe, the father, deals with the general management of the estate and takes care of the vineyards and countryside. Matteo, the eldest of the two sons, is in charge of marketing the wines and his brother, Nicola, is the winemaker who oversees the entire wine-making process. 

The Vineyeards
20 hectares of vineyards. Most of them are south-facing. 2.5 hectares have been planted in a north-facing direction with the aim of producing sweeter grapes in dry periods, which in recent years have become more frequent. All the red grape varieties are positioned on top of the hill while the white grape varieties have been planted on the valley floor.
The soil originates from the sea and is rich in fossil shells from the Pliocene epoch, and medium-textured corals.

The farm has always grown autochthonous grape varieties such as Sangiovese, Sangiovese Forte, Sangiovese Polveroso, Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, Colorino for red wines, and Vermentino and Colombana for white wines.

The Cantoni family regard the environment as an important part of our heritage, to be protected, not as a resource to be exploited. The quality of a product is inextricably linked to the way we care for the land. The land surrounding the farm is only treated using organic fertilisers and human intervention is kept to a minimum. From the point of view of energy consumption, the agritourism is completely self-sufficient with a 30-KW photovoltaic plant, a solar plant for the production of fresh water, and central heating which uses the wood obtained from pruning the river banks and from clearing the woodland.
Fattoria Fibbiano is a certified organic farm
