La Canosa

Immersed in the delightful Piceno hills of the Marche region, nested in the heart of the Sibillini National Park, "La Canosa" takes its name from the nearby village of Poggio Canoso, one of the four castles in Rotella, built between the 12th and 13th centuries by the Farfa monks (later Benedictines) in the heart of Val Tesino, behind the Ascension Mountain. ‘Poggio’ because it is perched on a rocky knoll, ‘Canoso’ from the Latin 'canus', aged, due to the whitish limestone or perhaps its shape resembling that of a crouching dog (canis), an animal also featured in the coat of arms. The estate covers about 110 hectares, straddling the 43rd parallel, a latitude suited to the production of excellent wines. As a matter of fact, on ancient medieval maps many of these fields were already marked with the emblematic and unequivocal symbol of the vine.
