Ronco delle Ginestre is shaped as a basin, as a small amphitheatre overlooking the valley. It is situated at an altitude of about 300 mts, it has a very steep slope and it is surrounded by broom bushes and olive groves. Ronco delle Ginestre is the first Castelluccio Sangiovese based wine. An only clone, selected in the ’70s, with small bunch of grapes, small grapes with thick skin. Factors as these that in most cases allow to reach an optimal level of maturation. Strong, powerful and sober, Ronco delle Ginestre is son of this harsh land, generous and wild that climbs the surrounding Tosco-Romagnolo mountains
