On the label there is an excerpt from the contract between an ancestor of our family and the hospital-military order of S. Stefano for the purchase of a small farm in the town of Certaldo dated September 11, 1776. The development of the land owned by the Pious Bodies, poorly used, was thanks to the Grand Duke Leopoldo of Tuscany who, with a series of government acts, facilitated their sale to the farmers. At the top is represented in molten gold one of the nine company symbols: the chalice, that represents the ancient oenological experience. The original name of our Chianti Colli Senesi Senarum is transformed into Senarum 1776 to celebrate the discovery of the document. Two eight-pointed red crosses flank the date in memory of the insignia of the military order.
