Producer
Castello di Querceto and the lands surrounding it are places full of history and atmosphere. Once the castle rose in a strategic and defensive position like a sentinel on the "Via Cassia Imperiale”, one of the main roman roads built by the Emperor Adriano in the 123 a.C. Nowadays it protects the treasure of its vineyards and olive-groves which spread along the valley of Dudda from "Passo del Sugame”, and, after Dudda, towards Lucolena and "Monte San Michele”. The castle dates back to the Lombardic time and it still preserves the medieval shape with a long "L” body and the tower with the Guelph battlement in the middle of the front. It was built in the XVI century a.C. after the destruction of the previous building, burnt and sacked during one of the several local wars at the end of the XV century. Also the houses surrounding the castle and the boundary walls were dismantled. Only the side of the wall dominating the valley remained and it is still there supporting the new building. During the construction the castle was owned by the Canigiani family, later it was bought by the Pitti, and remained for a long time their country residence.
