Olive groves also contribute to this sensation. About 3000 trees, a great historical legacy for the area, produce a small amount of extra virgin olive oil, the high quality of which expresses our care for doing things well.
Woods, isolated centuries-old trees, farmhouses with ancient cellars dug out of volcanic tuff stone and being restored, ditches and roads maintained with their natural border of original spontaneous vegetation, all outline and divide, but also unite all that which makes up the farm.
Lately a small part of the farm has been set aside for a more experimental research or recovery project; the two concepts often coincide, of how to ensure for another thousand years the millennial history that we have behind us. After years of intense viticultural and enological research, the identifying of a way of experiencing the agricultural world has shown its fundamental value, and the 270 hectares of Tenuta Le Velette can be its own small, balanced and complete agricultural world. This is the task of our future generations, which is beginning today.
