Vineyards | 0.5 hectares (1.2 acres). The vineyard overlooks the valley of the Pesa River on the opposite side of which is the hamlet of Volpaia. This land was formerly owned by the parish of Santa Cristina alla Villa in the commune of Radda in Chianti. In the period after World War Two, the end of the traditional sharecropping system of agriculture in Tuscany led to a decision by local priests to sell the land. It was purchased by the father of Irma Regoli, and when he passed away, it became the property of Irma and her husband Romolo Carrai. Thus it was that a parcel of land that formerly been used to grow a variety of crops including grain, fruits and vegetables, some wine grapes and olives, was transformed into a vineyard. The production of this wine is due to Romolo Carrai, who has been responsible for making wine for many years. This work continues today with the assistance of his children and grandchildren.
