History and sustainability.
This estate stretches across five hills, the amphitheatre-shaped vineyards enhance the territory and make it unique, a villa dating from 1521 and the dissemination of pictorial testimony linking agriculture to a glorious past coexist with modern farming techniques and a sustainable approach to winemaking.
The estate is situated in the southeastern part of the appellation, on the border with Umbria and Lake Trasimeno.
The vineyards enjoy a rich variety of exposures and soils which add different notes and nuances to the grape selections. In prehistoric times these valleys were full of water, but later dried up, leaving the land rich in sand (sandstone), clay (rich in salt) and invaluable silt deposits.
Today, the cold continental climate of inland Tuscany meets that of the lake, which exerts a positive influence and mitigates its harshness.
The Prugnolo biotype of Sangiovese ripens late with these soils and unique microclimate, giving rise to wines with a marked richness of fruit, sapidity and tannic rigour.
