AZIENDA

Our project began in
2008

when Marco, while studying at the Faculty of Agriculture in Florence, took over the two hectares of vines planted by his father Orazio back in 1973 on the family's historic property. From that grape harvest, we realized that wine in Casentino could be a winning bet.

MAXIMUM CARE FOR A
GENEROUS LAND

This also gave rise to the need to take the utmost care of this generous land, going organic at first and then applying biodynamics to our vineyards, as well as using natural wine making methods in our cellar. We had a clear plan: take the best fruit from the healthy soil to the cellar and process it while preserving its original characteristics, so that you can taste a bit of Casentino in every glass of our wine.

OUR CELLAR

This also gave rise to the need to take the utmost care of this generous land, going organic at first and then applying biodynamics to our vineyards, as well as using natural wine making methods in our cellar. We had a clear plan: take the best fruit from the healthy soil to the cellar and process it while preserving its original characteristics, so that you can taste a bit of Casentino in every glass of our wine. Over the years, confident in the choice we had made, we planted new vines. The original cellar where we started this project as a hobby would no longer be sufficient. In 2014 Marco was faced with a new adventure: building his own wine cellar! The project was created with inspiration from Steiner architecture. Round shapes and grass roofs are in perfect harmony with the surrounding nature and allow the wines to mature in the best possible way.
