LA QUERCE AZIENDA AGRICOLA stands in the heart of the production area of Chianti Colli Fiorentini. The farm is located in Impruneta and enjoys a total of 42 hectares. Here, vineyards and olive groves are cultivated between tradition and innovation.
La Querce farm is located on the beautiful hill overlooking Impruneta. It is located in the heart of the production area of Chianti Colli Fiorentini. It has a total extension of forty-two hectares where vineyards and olive groves are grown, from which the main products of our land are harvested: grapes and olives.
The fields are cultivated by coordinating work between tradition and innovation, as they limit the amount of chemicals to a maximum. This way you want to achieve the best balance between soil and plant to give superior quality products. The terrain is of a medium-sized clay-like structure, which allows the company to always have water reserves in the soil. Most of the land is facing south, in the vast Sorrettole valley. This allows you to have good exposure to the sun and light breezes during the harvesting period.
The vineyards stretch for about eight hectares and are mostly turned south. In recent years, almost all of them have been replanted with both traditional Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino vineyards, as well as with Merlot, all cultivated with spurred cordon.

The goal Gino Marchi gave when he acquired the La Querce farm in the 1960s was to produce high quality products. Over time, we have tried to find the best equilibrium formula to produce excellent wines as well as an excellent extra virgin olive oil. Even today, every step towards improvement is a choice that Massimo Marchi makes with the family and the whole staff, coordinated by Marco Ferretti, director of the farm.
