The winery is located in the municipality of Fonterutoli south of Castellina in the Chianti-Classico area of Tuscany. According to legend, the municipality of Fonterutoli played an important role in the creation of the Chianti region. The winery has been owned by the Mazzei family since 1453. A famous ancestor was the doctor Filippo Mazzei (1730-1816), who emigrated to Virginia, where he became a neighbour and friend of US President Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) and played an important role in the War of Independence. Today, a Cabernet Sauvignon wine bearing his likeness is produced as a tribute.
