Corte alla Flora | Estate winery in the Montepulciano region of Tuscany, Italy. It is now run by Massimo Cragnotti.
Background | Sergio Cragnotti (who owned Lazio Football Club) purchased a 90ha property in Montepulciano in 1990, creating Corte alla Flora. There were no vineyards planted at that time, but the Cragnotti family planted over 35 hectares of vineyards (mainly Sangiovese, plus Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc). The estate is located near the hamlets of Acquaviva and Cervognano. In addition to grapes, the owners had a large olive grove. In March 2002 Sergio Cragnotti was quoted as saying around 100,000 bottles of wine were being produced annually. It would appear the estate has been registered in the name of Sergio Cragnotti’s wife, Flora Pizzicheni. In the early 2000s the Cragnotti empire was investigated by the authorities.
Other crops | Kiwi fruit.
