Tenuta Cantagallo e Le Farnete Carmignano DOCG

Tenuta Cantagallo has been owned by the Pierazzuoli family since 1970 and covers 200 hectares of vineyards, olive groves and woods on the rolling Tuscan hills between Florence and Vinci. Their second property, Le Farnete Estate, is located in the town of Carmignano, near Firenze and it covers a surface of 100 acres in the Carmignano docg zone and it is of Pierazzuoli Family since 1990.

Carmignano DOCG is a selection of the best Sangiovese grapes 80% and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is the only DOCG in Italy where one is obliged to use Cabernet Sauvignon, because thanks to the Medici, the Carmignano is made by the blend between Sangiovese and “French grapes” which was Cabernet Sauvignon.
