The estate is located just outside of the famed tower city of San Gimignano on the western border of the Chianti zone in Tuscany. The estate dates back to Roman times and there are stories of the Knights Templar utilizing the property for meetings and ceremonies. Owner Elisabetta Fagiuoli and her husband bought the property in the 60’s, bringing it back to life from its abandoned state. The soil is filled with marine fossils and clay, giving the wines their minerality. Their profound respect for the land has always been the focus.
“Fiore”—meaning flower—is the truest expression of the Vernaccia variety. With the calcareous soil full of marine sediment paired with lees and bottle age, the Fiore is a clean, pure Vernaccia with intensity of texture.
