Antoine and Francine arrived in 1979 in Chianti and decided to build their future there. Today Anselmo and Julien after some other studies and experiences are back to take on with their parents work. The challenge is to continue to produce organic wines following a strict production ethic that should necessarily evolve to keep with actual values...
Casina di Cornia is in Castellina in Chianti on the south-west slopes of the Chianti hills between Siena and Florence. Located in the historic heart of the Chianti Classico.
Since the beginning they started producing organic, to put in the center of their agricultural work a good balance in our environment and develop the soil health.
The idea is to underline that our aim is to produce and offer our wines and not sell our production philosophy. It is important to them that their products speak themselves, and the production philosophy shows their everyday battle for their own interest.
Since they have decided in 2011 to work on the vineyard Anselmo and Julien are working with the same ideals with new goals, and evolving knowledge on both aspects, agricultural and oenological. Always keeping in mind that a good natural balance is the best way to express their terroir and identity.
