The Azienda Agricola Le Sughere, a farm holidays winery, is part of the Etruscan wine road situated on the Montefico mountain, which dominates the town of Rio Marina, in the heart of the mining area at the East Coast of the Elba island. The winery is extended over 25 hectares of land, about 10 hectares of which have a high concentration of grapevines (approximately 6000 per hectare) dedicated to it.
Guests are accommodated in two traditional farmhouses, renovated prioritising the recovery of original materials and furnished with late 19th-early 20th century furniture. There are 9 rooms with sea view, each with en-suite facilities, TV, minibar and safe, as well as two two-roomed apartments in a 3rd farmhouse (also recently renovated) a short distance from the others. There is ample car-parking at guests disposal. The farmhouses stand on the northern slopes of Monte Fico, in a hillside area, on terraces supported by dry-stone walls, surrounded by vineyards and ancient cork oak and ilex, myrtle, lentisk and strawberry trees, with the calm and silence broken only by the noises of the woods. The houses enjoy a sweeping view of the Strait of Piombino and in particular of the small islands of Palmaiola and Cerboli.
The wine cellar
The wine cellar connects the antique traditions of the insular autochthonous grapevines with the modern techniques of wine making. Therefore we succeed producing leading products, like our dessert wines, in which its sweet loveliness unites with the fragrance of wild berries. If the ‘Ansonica’, an amber-coloured dessert wine, is the oldest wine of Elba, originally imported by the Greeks, then the ‘Aleatico’, with its unmistakable rose and cherry bouquet, has to be considered the most typical wine from the island. Finally the golden ‘Moscato’ from Elba has shortly been rediscovered and d.o.c. certified, saving it so from the risk of extinction. Mixing the ‘Procanico’, the ‘Ansonica’ and the ‘Vermentino’, in a correct relationship to each other, we give origin to a lip-smacking white wine, with an intense bouquet. Whereas the full-bodied and the slight herbaceous taste of the Sangiovese , associated with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is naturally lifted by aging in wine barrels.
