The story of

Poggio Rosso Estate

Poggio Rosso estate was bought in 1973 by Giovanni Sozzi Sabatini. Giovanni was an agronomist that took his degree at the University of Florence with a dissertation on Olive Trees with a title: ‘Olive trees are not just landscape’.

Unfortunately his work was lost during the calamitous 1966 flooding. With passion Giovanni run the little estate that initially had olives trees, vineyards and arable land. In 1994 the whole estate was transformed into an olive grove.

The cultivar present at Poggio Rosso estate are the typical and most common cultivars of the Maremma region like: Moraiolo, Frantoio, Pendolino, Leccino and Scarlinese


The Maremma area has one of the most beautiful and unique stretches of coastline in Tuscany, miles of crystal clear waters and wide sandy beaches, small hidden coves and beautiful cliffs overlooking the sea.
