About producer: From 1086 the small farm known as La Mausolea, near Soci, with its lands, vineyards and a farmhouse, became the property of Camaldoli and it was known as one of the most important farms in Tuscany. In the XVI century, the wine of these vineyards was so famous that it kept the attention of Lorenzo de’ Medici. Even at present the wine of the Monks of Camaldoli are made with the grapes from the vineyards of the Farm la Mausolea itself, and are aged in the near cellar of the ancient Villa. In the cellar we can find two types of wine, the red and white Borbotto and dessert wine – Borbotto passito, produced by the Land and Forest Trust “La Mausolea”, biological certified company.
