A father's dream was brought to life by his son, and Casadei was born. Stefano Casadei put his passion for traditional farming and cultivation in conjunction with modern production techniques to create Casadei wines.
Stefano purchased 37 acres in Suvereto, near the central coast of Tuscany, in the southern district of DOC Val di Cornia. At an altitude of just over 1,600 feet, the estate is located on a low hill area, with typical Mediterranean vegetation and soil.
Suvereto produces wines, expressive of the Tuscan terrior. Grapes thrive in the soil and climate and express the aromas and charms of the Mediterranean. The result: elegant, intense, and memorable wines not found elsewhere.
Mild winters, cool summer breezes and cool nights at the end of the growing season create the best possible climate to grow fruit.
Water - Rainfall is mainly concentrated in autumn and spring, and allows natural water reserves in the soil. In summer, light rains promote optimal maturation and good health of the fruit.
Air - Constant breezes ventilate the vineyards throughout the year, creating low humidity and very little fog.
Vineyards are farmed using the Biointegrale method utlizing traditional organic and Biodynamic principles. It also addresses other environmental considerations, including the use of horses instead of tractors to avoid soil compaction and the implementation of renewable energy sources like solar.
