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. At the top, in the middle, in molten gold an ear of a wheat symbol of fertility. There is a blue variant of this label for the Vernaccia Casa Lucii.
