Podere Fortuna was part of Cafaggiolo Castle estate owned by the Medici family that was  native of this part of Mugello Valley. The place has been known for excellent wines since Middle Ages and, thanks to the Medicean Archives still available today in Florence, we have found proof of wine making at Podere Fortuna on 1465, when the property was inherited by Lorenzo il Magnifico and his ancient coat of arms featured a red grape on the top of Medici’s emblem.
