Arillo in Terrabianca

The story of Terrabianca intertwines in 2019 with that of the Italo-Swiss Burkard’s family. It is Adriana and Urs, with the acquisition of the Terrabianca and Il Tesoro estates, who change the destiny of this winery, driven by the desire to give life to a project rooted into the Tuscan oenological culture that aims to become a contemporary eco-sustainable business model. Start again from Nature to leave to the next generations a model of eco-sustainable enterprise, where man interprets and safeguards the land with infinite respect, giving life to characterful products of excellence. This is the vision that led Adriana and Urs Burkard to buy Arillo in Terrabianca in 2019, a single oenological reality with three different souls: Terrabianca in Radda in Chianti, Il Tesoro in Massa Marittima, and Colle Brezza in Pienza. TERRABIANCA In the heart of Chianti Classico, between the provinces of Siena and Florence, in the hamlet of San Fedele a Paterno in Radda in Chianti, rises the most historical of the three Arillo’s estates: Terrabianca, whose name pays homage to the characteristic whitish soil of this area, a unicum in the Tuscan landscape. Our vineyards spread over 12.5 hectares are cultivated mainly with Sangiovese grapes. The soil changes according to the altitude and the grapes are deeply influenced by its composition: the upper part delivers more concentration thanks to a soil texture rich of stones, while the lower part brings structure due to the high presence of clay. TESORO The property has a heterogeneous agricultural grid, alternating rows of vines and centuries-old olive trees. It covers an area of approximately 115 hectares at an altitude of up to 140 meters above sea level and it is characterized by different types of soil (stone and clay) rich in minerals such as iron and magnesium. The 36 hectares of vineyards are spread over different heights with a predominantly southern exposure, and benefit from special climatic conditions - proximity to the sea, constant ventilation, high temperature fluctuations - that allow the cultivation of healthy, fragrant, and slowly ripening grapes. COLLE BREZZA . Immersed in the beautiful setting of the National Park of Val d’Orcia (UNESCO Word Heritage Site since 2004), it’s a place where natural landscape and man’s work merge in a combination of shapes and colors that alternates sinuous hills, ancient villages, vineyards, and grim towers. Our aim is simple but ambitious: to give life to authentic and fascinating wines with a strong territorial connotation. To accomplish this, we follow the principles of sustainable, and minimalist winegrowing based on respect, equilibrium, and harmony.
