The estate Founded around the San Jacopo’s chapel by the architect Domenico Soldani Benzi in 1737, the estate covers 140 hectares, of which 40 are vineyards, 20 are olive groves and the rest are woods at an altitude of 300 meters and is positioned on the west side of the Chianti mountains in the Valdarno di Sopra.

Caprilius is the ancient name of Cavriglia, an ancient town of Roman origins once populated by shepherds and goats. To this place we have dedicated the name of this wine produced from 100% Montepulciano.
