Winemaker Cecilia Leoneschi leads the estate with flair and firmness. For Cecilia, great wines are made in the vineyard. Each vine, each bunch of grapes and each single grape is looked after and handled with the utmost care and attention.
“Our aim is to produce the exceptional quality that our soil permits us to make, yielding extraordinary personality and integrity in our wine.”
LAND PURCHASED AND VINEYARD PLANTED
Massimo Ferragamo locates and buys the land for his project. Work begins immediately in order to plant the vineyard that same year.
The first harvest is celebrated in September 2007 after five years of work.
