In the 1800s, around the La Boncia farm house, family ancestors found important Etruscan artefacts, today displayed in the most prestigious museums of the world.
On La Boncia land, the Etruscans (VI century B.C.) were already producing great wine, which they exported all over the known world.
Today we dedicate our Chianti to this land, wonderful mother that produced great wines back then, produces them today and will produce them forever.
