Since 1973, the property at Tenuta Calonica has been cultivated as a vineyard and is now an integral part of the Società Vinicola Toppetta family. Spanning approximately 35 hectares in the ‘pieve’ of Valiano, nestled between the renowned municipalities of Montepulciano and Cortona, the estate occupies a prestigious position. Situated directly between the esteemed properties of Antinori ‘La Braccesca’ and Avignonesi ‘le Capezzine,’ it graces a hilly ridge at approximately 350 meters above sea level, a short distance from Lake Trasimeno.
The wines crafted at Tenuta Calonica adhere to the production regulations of esteemed DOCG and DOC classifications, including Nobile and Rosso di Montepulciano, as well as the more recent DOC of Cortona. The vineyards benefit from optimal altitudes and exposures, featuring a predominantly clay-limestone texture with occasional sand outcrops.
This enchanting vineyard, strategically positioned amidst renowned neighbors and within the backdrop of storied landscapes, contributes to the rich winemaking tradition of the region, producing wines of distinction and character.
