« The Authentic »

Sangiovese planted in 1963, our cru is a selection from our best vineyard and expresses the best characteristics of our estate terroir.

The particular soil morphology, exposure and constant ventilation form a unique microclimate. The great biodiversity and agronomic care guarantee the vineyard great longevity.

Vigna Casanova is a wine for authenticity lovers.


Climatic conditions
In our region, the 2017 harvest is known for being an early vintage. After a mild and dry winter, early budding and spring showers allowed the flowering phase to start earlier than in previous years. Thanks to a hot and dry summer, ripe and polyphenol-rich grapes could be harvested in late August.
