Historical notes

Cultivated in reclaimed land

It is an ancient wine with certainly Etruscan origins. It develops with the evolution of the great Tuscan vine varieties, starting from Sangiovese and the many others that have characterized the oenological history of this land. It has make progress exponentially over the last forty years with the consolidation and definitive reclamation of the Maremma soils that have become more and more luxuriant. This evolution also derives from the development of the great wines of Bolgheri that have cleared the production of wines produced near the sea.
