Part of its vineyard (Fattoria di Zano) is located right above Greve, consists of approximately 50 hectares planted with Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon for the production of “Cabreo il Borgo”. The rest of the vineyards (25 hectares) are located in Panzano (6 Km south of Greve): they are planted with Chardonnay used to produce the “Cabreo La Pietra”.
The Folonari family has been making wine since the late eighteenth century. In 1825 the family-owned business took the name ‘Fratelli Folonari’ and adopted the mission of developing, producing and distributing the finest Italian wines throughout the world.
In 1912, Italo Folonari – Ambrogio Folonari’s grandfather – and his brother Francesco purchased the Ruffino Company in Tuscany that was famous for its Chianti wine in straw-covered flasks.
