THE HISTORY OF CASENTINO
It is a small valley in Tuscany between the provinces of Arezzo and Florence, whose morphological characteristics have earned it the name ``Valle chiusa`` (Closed valley) - Clasentinum. Created by nature as a sort of basket with a bottom of meadows and forests enclosed by wooded mountains and crossed by the river Arno, which flows through the valley to the plain of Arezzo. From here ``The Arno turns its face away from the inhabitants of Arezzo`` (Dante, Purgatory; XV.48) heading towards Florence.
A GREEN OASIS IN THE APENNINO TOSCO ROMAGNOLO
A land of towers, dungeons and castles, Romanesque parish churches, Della Robbia terracottas, Dantean and spiritual places. A green oasis in the Tuscan-Romagna Apennines (National Park of Casentino Forests);
rightly considered one of the most beautiful and coolest valleys in Tuscany.
The special balance between the soil and the characteristic temperature ranges of the Casentino valley allows the grapes to ripen to perfection, giving us a fruit with a distinct aroma and a wine of remarkable elegance.
