LA STORIA
THE HISTORY

During the iron ages (X-VII century bc) there were already five Castles defending the Prile costal lake one of which was the Castellacio di Prile located in our estate. Of the five castels the Castellaccio di Prile was the most important with big walls and rised 15 meters above the earth level by an embankment. In the Castellaccio, Etruscans, Romans and barbarians have been working the iron.

The Benedectines monks (as it often happens in successful wine stories) started the cultivation of the land along the Prelius lake on the slopes of the Castellaccio di Prile in the proximity of Castiglione della Pescaia.

Nowdays of the Castellaccio di Prile the ancient walls and other traces are left but in the folk tradition it is still very well known. Along its slopes vineyards still florish today.
