Bright greenish yellow in colour. A fresh, fragrant bouquet with fruity notes of plum and yellow apple.


It owes its name to an ancient breviary, the beauty of whose elaborate decoration is mentioned in historical documents, which was gifted to the Convento di San Lodovico (San Lodovico Convent) in Montevarchi. The label features a monk, in tribute to the centuries of work and effort the monks put into preserving our precious cultural heritage.

 


 

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.
