This estate is located in the Maremma, the so called ‘wild side of Tuscany’ on the coast in Grosetto.   This is a modern collaboration between two young winemakers Fabrizio [Frank] Testa and Pier Paolo [Serafico] Pratesi .   They decided in 2009 to rent property and make wine in the Maremma.  Within 2 years they started purchasing their own vineyards and continue to add to their holdings.  This estate not only specializes in craft wines but also craft beer besides they have a restaurant right on the property.

This property is located in the Uccelina Natural Park a beautiful and rugged landscape where the soils nearest to the property are generally sandy.  This is where the white wines are planted.  The reds are planted on sloped soils in Magliano.  These soils are mostly filled with limestone and skeletal remains from long ago sea beds.

We will begin our collaboration with their Vermentino, Morellino di Sansano, and ‘super Tuscans’ Frank [a Bordeaux blend] and a 100% Sangiovese.
