About the Wines
Bianco alla Marta
Our white wine “à la Marta” comes from a happy idea of our daughter Marta, who suggested that the small quantities of Trebbiano Toscano found in our oldest vineyard could have been fermented on the skins.
The maceration does not exceed 10 days, but is sufficient to enrich this white wine with colour, body and tannins.

About the Winery
The ancient wine vocation of the territory of Castellina in Chianti and the passion for experimentation of Gabriele Buondonno and Valeria Sodano stood out as the farm’s most peculiar features since its very beginnings. As early as 1989, before specific regulations were even introduced, Casavecchia alla Piazza was already an organic farm: a new idea of agriculture brought into the ancient wine-making heart of Tuscany. Nestled between tree-filled hills striated with vineyards and the typical tiny Chianti villages, Casavecchia alla Piazza provides its guests with country-style apartments, suitable for couples and families alike.
Fattoria Pomona - The vineyard covers 6 hectares and to reach it I just need to cross the road. I believe in the principles of organic farming, certified on the label since 2012. I let the grass grow between the rows, I practice green manure, I plant clover and barley, I breathe lightly what will go into the bottle. The exposure of the ridge is to the east, the maximum altitude is 350 meters above sea level and all around the forest, plants and streams, mitigate the temperatures.
