The property covers 400 hectares around the mansion called Castelluccio Amerino overlooking the valley described in the centuries as the “Valley of the Queens”, located between the towns of Narni and Amelia – beautiful villages of ancient Etruscan, Roman and medieval times. The building was part of a line of fortifications built in strategic locations to control the Umbrian valleys, used since ancient times to reach Rome from the north.
Since 1500 the possessions and land were the fief of various noble families of the place, and suffered the ups and downs of changes, until the current owner decided to reconstitute and expand the company, restoring the ancient vocation to the culture of vineyards and olive and aiming to get the highest quality productions in complete harmony. Philosophy is “the best wine from the best land”, ensuring that during every step, from grape growing to winemaking, natural techniques are used. The harvesting is done by hand.
