Podere La Papessa
The elders of San Donato remember how their ancestors spoke of a time when this small far was run by a country woman of such a determined and independent character that she was known as La Papessa (ironic Italian term for "lady Pope"). Both the Agriturismo and one of our wines have taken the name that this area has always been known by. The vineyard was planted in 1975.
