The lands where part of our property is located are called “Le Favorite”. This name comes from the XIX Century and it was used because, since at that time, those were the most fertile lands on the southern side of Cetona Mountain, especially for the grapevine growing. These lands were assigned to the most deserving peasants.
The area “Le Favorite” is located in a area called “Costa del Sole” (for its exposure to the sun) which is covered from the winds coming from the north. The grapevine “Le Favorite” is located on top of “Costa del Sole”, on a really steep hillock, where the sun exposure, the clay soil and the proximity of the Mount Cetona make the grapes ripen ten days before the ones on the other surrounding vineyards. All these conditions help us to obtain strong but refined and aromatic wines.
