Via dei Setteponti follows an ancient Etruscan route, built to connect Arezzo to Fiesole by travelling halfway between the Pratomagno massif and the Arno valley. Additions were made in Roman times and it was known as the Cassia Vetus consular road. The Setteponti road crosses a large part of the Upper Valdarno, with its picturesque and diverse landscapes. In this fascinating land, the vines find their perfect habitat, where they can be cultivated and where they can create wines of great quality. Chianti DOCG is pure Sangiovese or a combination of Sangiovese with native vines or various international vines to a limited extent; and Valdarno di Sopra DOC is the main wine of the eastern and western slopes of the valley traversed by the Arno river, between the plain of Arezzo and the beginning of the Florentine hills. Terranuova Bracciolini, one of the main centres of Valdarno Aretino, is home to the Consorzio di Tutela Valdarno di Sopra DOC, which lovingly preserves its controlled origin, authenticity and taste.
