Marcianella’s land produced quality wine under the Etruscans (IV century B.C.), produces it today and will produce it forever.
Pietro Bonci Casuccini (Nicolò Casini’s ancestor) devoted his life to studying the Etruscan people (600 B.C.), excavatingntheir tombs on the land of Marcianella and collecting artefacts that today are displayed in the most prestigious museums of the world. Marcianella lies in the southern part of the province of Siena, in the township of Chiusi. It comprises 450 hectares of land, which over the centuries have been primarily dedicated to cereal crops and to the Chianina cattle that are indigenous to the area. The family has been running it since the mid-1700s. Starting from the late 1960s, land ideal for vineyards was identified; today 20 hectares of vineyards produce excellent Chianti Colli Senesi and Chianti DOCG. The land rich in sand and clay, together with the altitude of 250 m, give particular warmth to the wine, while the Sangiovese grapes provide freshness and fruitiness. The local tree “minute olive” that has a very low yield is the key to the excellent quality olive oil produced in Marcianella.
