In Tuscany, every place has a special story behind it. And the story of Borgo Tre Rose begins in the twelfth century, when the tower which still dominates the hamlet to this day was the residence of Santa Margherita da Cortona. The name, Tre Rose, derives from the coat of arms of the Vagnucci family, which bought the hamlet in 1450 during the Tuscan Renaissance; the very same period when the great Leonardo da Vinci portrayed Borgo Tre Rose in his work entitled “Bird’s eye view of the Val di Chiana” in 1502. The Tre Rose Estate, it stands out for its production of the Nobile di Montepulciano wine, which is produced with the grapes of autochthonous grape varieties, and is aged in large oak casks and in barrels. It is a wine that has won international prizes and awards with the Simposio label (pure Sangiovese only obtained from long-standing vines).
The term "Salterio" indicates a stringed instrument, which dates back to at least 300 A. C. usually of trapezoidal shape, with two central strings groups. The space between the two rows of strings was used for insertion of the book of psalms, who sang using the instrument as accompaniment.
