In 1996, Cecchi purchased the Val delle Rose winery along with 25 hectares of vines, in the small town of Poggio la Mozza which lies at the heart of Morellino di Scansano. The Cecchi intervention was comparable to a minor farming revolution, the new agricultural techniques ensuring the batch-to-batch consistency needed for the viability of a modern, quality winery.

The excellent level of grape maturity and the modest yield per hectare ensure elegant and well structured wines.
Vinification begins with cold pre-fermentation maceration and is then followed by a temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel. This is followed by a few months aging in French oak barrels and subsequent bottle refinement.
