The company sits on a hill in the northern part of the Elsa valley, famous for the historical town of San Gimignano. This area is central to visits of the Chianti region, Sienna and Volterra. The area is mentioned in the writings of paleontology and has special interest in fossil rich outcrops of the marine Pliocene era. Within this landscape of clay erosion it is possible to see and explore.
The origin of the farm dates back to 1770, and have a ledger proof of the crop production up until 1915. In historical times it was a look out tower dating back to the year 1000, and today remains visible sign of these ancient walls that are located in the cellars. Many changes have been made to the house since then.
We apply the method of organic farming and the philosophy of biodynamics since 1980, and are certified by Demeter since 1995.
Our production consists of wine, vinsanto (desert wine), sparkling wine, vinegar, balsamic vinegar, brandy, aged grappa, brandy, olive oil, extra virgin olive oil and spelt.

Chianti Riserva :2006, Aged in chesnut casks of hl.37,20 for 24 months. It is a selection of Sangiovese, where the right level of wood produces a palate pleasing sensation of softness due to the tannins and an explosion of mature fruit flavour.
