The Producer

Our winery: an ancient monastery from the XVII century in which sparrowhawks are wont to do their nest. That’s why the sparrowhawk is still our symbol.  The company spans over a total of 380 hectares. 90 hectares are vineyards at an altitude of 250 meters (commonly considered optimal for the production of Chianti Classico).

The production is focused mainly on the red wines, because we strongly believe in maximizing our efforts on the traditional products of the region.
