The heritage of the Castle of Poppiano in Chianti Colli Fiorentini, represents a farming and wine making tradition for the Guicciardini family since the XI century . Massi Di Mandorlaia in Morellino di Scansano, in Maremma (the southern coastal area of Tuscany) is the new seat for the family, marrying past / present techniques and philosophies.
