The winery is located in the municipality of Poggibonsi in the Cinciano district of the Chianti region (province of Siena) in the Italian region of Tuscany. Between 1126 and 1900 it was owned by the Curia of Florence. In 1973 it was acquired by the current owner family and is now run by the siblings Ferdinando and Ottavia Garrè. Stefano Porcinai is responsible as oenologist and Valerio Marconi as cellar master. The vineyards are planted on typical Chianti-Alberese soils (weathered sandstone) and cover 33 hectares of vineyards, no grapes are bought in. They are mainly planted with Sangiovese (various clones), as well as some Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. With the white wine varieties Grechetto, Sauvignon (S. Blanc) and Viognier are experimented.
