Caprandole

The Caprandole estates lies few kilometers from Florence in a less-know valley placed in the ideal triangle Firenze-Fiesole-Pontassieve. It is a different Tuscany from the neighboring Chianti.
Big ancient villas are missing, replaced by ancient houses once inhabited by peasants and farmers. The house where our cellar is now, dates back from the 12th century. Our hills (300/400 meters a.s.l.) are all facing south and are completely surrounded by oak forests. We own 4 vineyards: the widest (3,5 hectars) and oldest (1969) is named Caprandole or Vignone. The others are: Bocciolè (1971, exactly 1 hectare); Tirle (1997, 1,5 hectare) and last but not least Campo Nuovo (1999, 1 hectare).
