Particularly well-suited soils, alluvial,
gritty and sandy deposits, so rich in clay as to
require an extremely careful approach to cultivation:
this is Collelceto.
Elia manages to obtain the very best from these soils: balanced musts and very concentrated wines, suitable for long aging. The vineyards vary in altitude from 150 to 180 meters above sea level, protected to the north by tree-covered hills while, in the south-west, the valley opens up to the mistral winds, typical of the Maremma coast, guaranteeing constantly temperate conditions, essential to the prolonged, healthy ripening of the grapes.
