Description

For generations our family has been practicing wine-making with passion and competence, whilst also working in different professional fields, just as fascinating, from which it draws resources to invest in viticulture, which, for us, is both challenge and pleasure. After years of research in Tuscany, we were then given the opportunity to buy an old 20-hectare farm in Petraia di Cortona, located on the hills opposite Cortona at 310 m above sea level, which was already used for viticulture and bordering properties owned by major wine producing families: the Antinori and the Ruffino. Gradually we removed the old vines which were no longer productive, and just as gradually replanted four vines, the Syrah Nero, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot Nero e Sangiovese grosso, which are enlivened by the microclimate of the nearby Trasimeno lake, and enable the production of elegant and quality wines. In the following years we proceeded to cultivate a further 14 hectares, of which 14 are currently in production
