The property, located in the Municipality of Radda(Siena Province) , stands on a hill, on the top of which there is the village of Campomaggio, dominated by an eighteenth-century manor house. The birth of the village, currently used as an accommodation business, dates back to the beginning of the eighteenth century and is located five kilometers North of the town of Radda in Chianti. The production area of Campomaggio is one of the most vocated areas of Chianti Classico, whose denomination is well-known worldwide.
The historic vineyards, which were just over 25 hectares, have all been progressively replaced since 1990 when the property passed to the Castellani family. Over the years new vineyards have been purchased bringing the total area under vine to 32 hectares.
In 2016 a new Sangiovese plant was made for a total of 3.5 hectares, and the operation was completed in spring 2021.

The vineyards are located at an average altitude between 280 and 480 metres a.s.l.

The soil is medium-textured, chalky-clay rich in rock and stone deriving from the disintegration of rocks (galestro and alberese). This unique conformation of the soils allows the roots to work very deeply, enabling a great balance between drainage capacity and water retention. Even the lower average temperature in this area, especially in the spring period, causes the vegetative development to be initially slowed down, producing less vigorously, so the future bunch will normally be smaller with a slower and not early ripening. The great thermal excursions during the summer period, especially in the vineyards above 300-350 m a.s.l. , favor the ripening of the grapes with the possibility of having a better phenolic component and therefore an increase in the olfactory characteristics.
