In the centre of the estate is the old Villa da Filicaja. Vines have been grown here since the Etruscans. The family who still own the Villa have been making extremely fine wines here for the past five hundred years, adding small innovations and improvements developed through experience year after year, century after century and generation after generation.
"Endless words can be used to describe, or rather try to describe a wine, a taste, a flavour. Some come very close to succeeding, others not. However, words will never be able to reproduce the exact sensation of the real experience. I invite you to taste in silence and allow yourself to be swayed by your own emotions, leaving the words and the talking to others..."
Count Andrea Nardi-Dei da Filicaja Dotti (1920-1993)
