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 Reserva comes for a very careful selection of grapes Sangiovese 80% and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, made in the oldest vineyards of the estate which have a perfect exposure in the south so it guarantees an optimum ripening.
