Barco Reale - D.O.C.

The youthful version of the D.O.C.G., Barco Reale is made with the same grapes (Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon) together with a small amount of Canaiolo. It takes its name from the Medici property at nearby Artimino whose boundaries were defined by the ‘wall of the Barco Reale' ('Regal Reserve') which ran for more than 30 Roman miles.

Vin Ruspo - D.O.C.

Rosato di Carmignano D.O.C. has its origins in the ancient tradition of sharecropping. Farmers were known to siphon off or “ruspare” a quantity of the landowner’s pooled grape must for their own consumption. As the must would be taken in the early stages of fermentation, it was only lightly coloured. Today it is still the brief contact with the skins that gives this wine its beautiful pink colour. Our Vin Ruspo, made with Sangiovese, Cabernet and Canaiolo, is both vibrant and elegant.

Trebbiano - I.G.T.

A new and pioneering addition, the Trebbiano I.G.T. was produced for the first time in the year 2000 with the aim of reintroducing this variety into modern winemaking. A quality wine is obtained through exacting methods such as a selection massale, short pruning, a strict vendemmia verde and a late harvest. Aged in tonneaux, the wine acquires elegant secondary aromas and a structure suitable for ageing.

About us

Company details

Vines have been cultivated in Carmignano since pre-Roman era, about 3000 years ago, as the wine jars and tasting cups found in Etruscan tombs testify. In the Florentine state archives a parchment dated A.D. 804 was found: it is a lease document showing that vines and olives were cultivated for the production of wine and oil at Capezzana as far back as 1200 years ago.
In 1475, during the early Renaissance, Monna Nera Bonaccorsi built the first 'Nobleman's house' along with nine farm houses with the wine-making buildings. Other generations and families were to follow in the ownership of the property: the Cantucci, related to Medici, and the Marchesi Bourbon del Monte. In the eighteenth century a lady from the Cantucci family, married to a Bourbon, enlarged the farm and bought new plots. She also introduced an exemplary administrative approach, leaving a wealth of documents that are today stored in the historic archives of the company.
After the Bourbon del Monte, the estate passed to the Adimari Morelli, then to Franchetti and Rothschild and finally, via the widow Sara de Rothschild, to the Contini Bonacossi, our family, in 1920.
