Pope Paul III, a pope of the Renaissance and a renowned gourmet, always made sure that his cellars contained large stocks of Cortona wine. And the Italian poet Carducci apparently found inspiration for his works from a small cask of ‘splendid wine’ from Cortona.
Cortona overlooks the breathtaking panorama of Valdichiana, with views extending all the way to Lake Trasimeno. Over the years, the town has developed into a thriving cultural centre, hosting several artistic events each year and attracting thousands of tourists for its reputation as a place where one can enjoy the culture and relaxed lifestyle typical of Tuscany.
In order to differentiate this appellation from its renowned neighbour Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Cortona has specialized in the cultivation of international grape varieties, including Merlot, Syrah and Chardonnay, which thrive in the more clayey soil typical of this area.
We have a vineyard in the Cortona area, where we grow mostly Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
