History

Fattoria Casa di Terra is a family run estate in the heart of Bolgheri on the Tuscan coast (Maremma). The Fattoria was purchased in 1956 when the grandparents of the present owners, Gessica and Giuliano Frollani, moved to Maremma from the Marche.
At first mainly fruit trees and vegetables were grown, as in most of the local farms, then in the 1990s vineyards gradually started being planted reaching 45 hectares (33 of which are within the Bolgheri DOC appellation) from the initial 3 hectares. The grape varieties are mainly French, typical of Bolgheri: Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Rebo (a cross between Merlot and Teroldego), Vermentino, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
The staff is young and very motivated. Diego Mugnaini is the on-premise oenologist and agronomist. Diego has worked with the well known oenologist Alberto Antonini and has had experience abroad in Australia and in New Zealand. Emiliano Falsini, who consults for other estates of our portfolio, is the consultant oenologist. Stefania Brunetti and Alberto Rossi, previously employed by one of the largest Tuscan estates, follow the marketing issues.
The vineyards are kept as a garden. Viticulture is strictly sustainable. The soil is typical of Bolgheri: sandy-clayey, clayey with pebbles, red ferrous clay with sand.
The new and modern 7,500 square meter cellar is built following eco-sustainable principles and it is designed so to blend in the landscape. The practices in the cellar are aimed at keeping the integrity of the wines as much as possible and the fermentation of the reds is spontaneous.
The wines are Bolgheri DOC Rosso, Bianco and Rosato and IGT/proprietary wines. The philosophy of the estate is to produce elegant and drinkable wines that are accessible to the professional and private customer alike.
