Tenuta Caseo is the new addition to the Tommasi Family Estates portfolio, it is located in the upper Valle Versa in the territory of Oltrepò Pavese, in Lombardy – 1 hour South of Milan. The Oltrepò Pavese is a land of ancient and noble origins, where several aristocratic families lived and left castles and villas in heritage, surrounded by their wide vine estates. Pavia, was the capital of the Lombards Empire, a Germanic tribe who ruled Italy from 568 to 774. They deeply marked the territory with their culture and traditions. They were skilled jewelers and the Queen Teodolinda crown was so precious that it was used for the coronation of the King of Italy until the XIX century (from Charlemagne, to Napoleon and the Savoy family). Tenuta Caseo was already mentioned in some documents dated back to 1200; in fact, remedy it was given to the noble Gian Galeazzo Visconti as a reward for his loyalty in a battle. It is still in its original size. The estate covers 120 hectares: 90 of vineyards and the remaining 30 hectares are wood, try natural setting of vineyards and hunting reserve. The Caseo estate is unique for its sun exposure, south-southwest, and the composition of the soil with a high clay content, along with a good presence of active limestone, perfect for making wines of extraordinary elegance as Pinot Noir. The vineyards are cultivated in accordance with the guidelines on agriculture at low environmental impact; cordon trained and guyot are the systems used to grow vines respecting rigid agronomic practices to maintain low yields and obtain high quality grapes. The Oltrepò hills is the only area of Lombardy permanently occupied by the red partridge. In the Tenuta Caseo logo, we wanted to represent the territory and its history: a flying red bird portrayed in a design featuring an ancient Lombard jewel.
