Production is constantly increasing since the most recent implants (2012) are not fully productive yet. Implants of <i>Podere A</i> (15 ha, the most recent) are fitted with an irrigation system (root and foliage) and are already compatible with mechanic harvest. Furthermore, groves are divided by <i>cultivar</i> so that each variety can be harvested at the peak of maturation (veraison).</br></br> <b>Podere A</b> (15 ha) boasts trees planted between 1993 and 2012 of the following cultivars: Frantoio (50%), Moraiolo (23%), Borgiona (10%), Gentile di Anghiari (8%), Dolce Agogia (5%), Leccino (3%) and Pendolino (1%).
