The type of training is divided between spurred cordon and espalier with guyot pruning.

The Paneretta Castle has very ancient origins, which date back to the battle of Montaperti in 1260. With a total area of ​​over three hundred hectares, of which 22 are vineyards, it is one of the largest farms in the area.

Based on the type of soil we can divide the body of the vineyards into three different areas.

The Terrine, Torre a Destra, Torre a Sinistra vineyards have clay with a large quantity of light galestri and limestone formations. The strata are arranged in the direction of the hill and the rocky outcrops are weak. Soils are light ocher, little eroded and have an extraordinary physical balance. Full-bodied and well-structured wines are extracted from these soils.

The Ciliegio, Bossolo and Barbiano vineyards have layers of red-violet schistose shale alternating with deposits of clayey and loamy soils. The wines of these lands are produced leaner wines, but with greater finesse.

Finally, from the Querciole and Poggio vineyards. These are semi-flat soils placed on top of the hills. Here we can observe the process of ancient formation dating back to climatic eras of a completely different nature, where the aggressions of iron and aluminum on the limestone banks, gave rise to deeper and stronger soils. The position of these lands combined with their exposure there protected from washout and made more generous.
