The label represents the main building used in ancient times as a hospitable convent as mentioned on a papal bull dated 1260. Nowadays the building together with the other parts, the farmhouse, the barn and the cellar, constitutes the core of the farm and the family. Above, in the center, the wind symbol represents the strength of renewal. There is a red variant of this label for Chianti Fuscelli.
