The Valle del Torrente Taverone region of Tuscany is rich with history, including the Malaspina Castle on the property of Casteldelpiano. Built in medieval times for the purpose of defending agricultural crops in the area, this castle was transformed into a residence in the sixteenth century, then subsequently abandoned. Andrea Ghigliazza and Sabina Ruffaldi discovered the property in 2004, purchased it, and renovated both the estate and the small blocks of native vines. The couple is passionate about maintaining biodiversity on their farm and re-establishing the native grapes of the area, including Canaiolo, Durella Gentile, Pollera Bianco, Pollera Nero, and Vermentino Nero. The winemaking is light-touch with a focus on pink and fizzy wines for everyday consumption.
