From the producers website:

"Should you happen to visit our Marcianella estate and should you go for a walk which will fill your eyes and your heart, you will encounter a gracious “cuccumello” (a small hill in Tuscan) on top of which Nicolo’s great grandfather decided to build a farmhouse. The entrepreneurial spirit was more important than the name that building would be given. On the very top of the cuccumello there was a plant of “sorbe”, a typical local berry, famous in the surroundings for its production of the sweetest ones available. Without imagination, but strongly respecting what Nature provided, the farmhouse was named Poggio al Sorbo. Today the “sorbo” is not there anymore, but the vineyards which surround the building enrich the landscape."

From the producer’s website: Bindi Sergardi is a farm which has stayed in the same family since the 1349 and has been passed from one generation to the next in natural succession. It has undergone all the phases of good agricultural practice in use over the centuries and has now had to accept its transformation into a family company, justified and made necessary by the dimensions of a property which comprises over a thousand hectares.
The lay of the land does not consent extensive cultivations in this day and age, but imposes a search for niche products of high quality, vocation and imagination. A natural consequence of this is that the members of the  family who today run the farm (represented by two generations: Nicolò Casini and his daughter Alessandra) have emphasized two main sectors, namely fine wine and traditional crops in rotation, with a side line of olive oil from our hills in Chianti.
