Ceppaiano estate, located in the heart of a new production area in Tuscany.
The Ceppaiano Estate is the latest addition to the constellation of the historic vineyards owned by the Castellani family. The idea to cultivate vines on the extreme western border of the production area of Chianti, just 20 kilometers from the Tyrrhenian Sea on the hilly lands on the ancient banks of the Arno river, originates from a meeting between the visionary English wine expert Simon Farr and Piergiorgio Castellani, both looking for a new way to tell the great Tuscan wine tradition.
The creative energies of the Castellani company are thus focused, and under the technical supervision of the agronomist Alessandro Moretto and the oenologist Sabino Russo, the old vineyards are restored and fifty adding hectares are planted, setting high enological goals.
The presence of a vinification cellar within the estate and the use of integrated techniques of organic farming, allow the preservation of the purity of the fruit during cultivation, harvesting and processing.
