Welcome in the big
The Castelvecchio Agricultural Estate is located in Terricciola, a hilltop village in the Tuscan province of Pisa which originated as on Etruscan hamlet over the Sterza waterway where the Era and Cascina valleys converge. The 59 acre (24 hectare) estate property is divided into land for sowing, olive and fruit groves, of which six are vineyard. The nucleus of the original estate, a charming farmhouse and its surrounding land, has been inabited and cultivated by the Pantani family since 1956. Love for the land is something that is handed down from generation to generation.
In 2002, Claudia, the youngest daughter, and her stone mason brothers and cousins decided to rally together to resume the cultivation of wine on their estate. The entire family got engaged in the enterprise, finding solutions to challenges and realizing the project together, with the labor of their own hands. The vineyard was planted and winery built, woodden doors hand-carved, and frames constructed for the cane mats to dry grapes for Vin Santo. Attention has been given to every last detail with dedicated family “know how” and loving care. Castelvecchio is the realization of a dream and the fruition of a passion. The characteristic wines express respect for the soil, the nature of local traditions, and the dignity of careful work in the vineyard and winery to create top quality wine.
