Monteraponi is an ancient medieval village, built around three square-based towers dating back to the 10th century. The winery is situated on the top of a 470-meter-high hill and dominates the valley below, which slopes down towards the Arbia river.

The winery extends over an area of 200 hectares set in a natural amphitheater, which is exposed to the south and sheltered from the north winds. The vineyards are spread over 12 hectares, the olive trees over 8 hectares, while the remaining area is covered with towering, ancient oaks and chestnut trees which surround and isolate the winery from the outside world.
