The Ceppaiano Estate was born in 2005. Initially conceived as an extension of the Poggio al Casone vineyards and location of the new winery, it afterwards becomes an independent estate as a result of subsequent land acquisitions that differ from those of Poggio al Casone for the prevalence of alluvial sands arranged on foothill heights overlooking the coast.

Alessandro Puccinelli

"In the harvest series of pictures, series commissioned for a particular occasion, the beauty is inside things…. the eye is only picking up this passionate moment, the flow of the events, the passion in presence of beauty, energy of nature, energy of the heart."

An insect which had gone missing…

From the early '900 it hadn't been seen. The only specimen observed and captured until today is in the entomological collection of the University of St. Petersburg and dates back to 1903. It is a tiny insect of the order "Hymenoptera", belonging to the family Braconidae. To be precise, the scientific name of this microscopic animal is Ecclitura primoris Kokujev (Hymenoptera, Braconidae, Euphorinae).
