Bright straw yellow in colour with subtle reflections of antique gold.

A characteristic bouquet with intense notes of fresh walnut and hazelnut alongside hints of candied and dried fruit, apricot and yellow peach, with a final flourish of chestnut honey.

Paying homage to the area and its history once again, we have chosen an ecclesiastical figure to inspire its name. Elemperto was once the bishop of Arezzo and a lord, but above all he donated a hospital and all his assets to the local community.



Winemaking tradition has always been a permanent feature of Tenuta Scrafana, set within the unique landscape of the Montevarchi hills, and the agricultural calling of this land is attested by history.

Indeed, Tenuta Scrafana has been around since ancient times, and today 20 of its 50 hectares of land are vineyards. It also includes approximately 300 olive trees as well as a small, precious orchard of ancient tree varieties. 

Every single Scrafana product is a tribute to this magnificent land, and especially to the town of Montevarchi. That's why the prehistoric elephant was chosen as the Estate's symbol. This magnificent pachyderm, which roamed the area around two million years ago, with its fossil remains preserved in the Museo Paleontologico di Montevarchi (Montevarchi Paleontological Museum), encapsulates the unique magic of a “middle-earth” that's steeped in history and culture which, since the dawn of time, has seen the passage of heroes, wayfarers and pilgrims. One of them was the great Hannibal who travelled across Italy with elephants to challenge Rome.
