Fattoria Fibbiano is located in Tuscany, in the Council of Terricciola, Province of Pisa.
Terricciola, in the hills between Pisa and Volterra, is an area rich in history and legend. The soils are marine, full of corals, medium texture. Pliocene shells.
The farm lies on an entire hill. Most of the vineyards are in the south. 2.5 hectares were planted north deliberately to get fresher grapes in dry periods, very frequent in the last few years. All the varieties of red grapes are planted on the top of the hill, whilst the white grapes are planted at the bottom of the slope.
A stone in the basement of the building has carved the year of construction: 1707. In 1997 Giuseppe Cantoni bought the Fibbiano farm.
 
Total area: 20 hectares of vines (around 2.5 hectares have more than 100 years).
 
The company has always cultivated autochthonous grapevines like Sangiovese, Sangiovese Forte, Sangiovese Polveroso, Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, Colorino for red wines, Vermentino & Colombana for white wines.
