The estate is, since 2000, property of the Counts Borghini Baldovinetti de’ Bacci family and together with the other estates in Arezzo (Tenuta San Fabiano and Tenuta di Campriano), are part of the San Fabiano winery. The vineyards of the estate have been completely replanted following the philosophy of the clone selection and the French “terroir” concept, in order to enable the vines to better express their characteristics and quality potential.
