Background | Bruno Micheletti, the founder of the estate, had initially worked as a farmer, together with his family, for the Espinassi-Moratti in Campastrello. Then, in 1963 he acquired the territory of the “Campo alla Capanna” località, only a few steps from the Via Bolgherese, between Castagneto Carducci and Bolgheri. He paid 9–or ‘nove’ in Italian–million old lire, which gave origin to the somewhat nostalgic name of the estate. The family sold their wines in bulk for fifty years before deciding to estate bottle.
