Capezzana, among the oldest wine estates in Tuscany, has been producing wine in Carmignano since pre-Roman era, about 3000 years ago, as the wine jars and tasting cups found in Etruscan tombs testify. In the Florentine state archives a parchment dated 804 A.D.: it is a lease document showing that vines and olives were cultivated for the production of wine and oil at Capezzana as far back as 1200 years ago. In 1475, during the early Renaissance, Monna Nera Bonaccorsi built the first ‘Nobleman’s house’ along with nine farm houses with the wine-making buildings. Other generations and families were to follow in the ownership of the property: the Cantucci, related to Medici, and the Marchesi Bourbon del Monte.
