The Società Cooperativa Agricola Cantina “VITA s.c.” is situated at the gates of Arezzo, Tuscany, Italy.
It is located in a hill territory with a millenary wine growing tradition, as it can be easily seen, for instance, in the finding of millstones used by the Romans for producing wine or in the precious coral vases that recall scenes of a wine nature.
It is a cooperative with more than four hundred members, owners of about eight hundred hectares of vineyards in the province of Arezzo.
By law, the producers must contribute all the grapes produced, the “Cantina VITA s.c.” began operating in 1971 by transforming 1.000 tons of grapes into wine.
The original structures have been modernized and the number of members and quantity of grapes have increased up to more than 10.000.000 litres.
The annual average of grapes is about 8.000 tons.
The vinification of all grape fruits is done with the strict control of fermentation temperatures; as far as the vinification of red grape fruits is concerned, Method Ganimede is used.
The wine-making, refinement, refrigeration and stabilization fixtures guarantee the best quality and hygiene.
The bottling plant is entirely automatic and sterile.
The grapes are looked after following traditional Tuscan methods, using the Chianti way of maturing in slavonian wood and in barriques made up with precious French and American kinds of wood.
