Casale Senni. Winery Tour with wine and EVOO tasting
Just a few meters from the handy Monte Porzio Catone motorway exit (turn left and it's on the first bend right after Fontana Candida Winery), this estate is in a time bubble. It is hard to pin point a date of construction as the original nucleus was built over cisterns that apparently had once belonged to Cato the Elder's Villa (200 B.C. circa). The present aspect of the farmhouse is attributed to the 17th Century and was painted in a view by none the less than Goethe. The first mention of the farm dates to notary deeds from 1579. The farm is run by Barbara Jannoni Sebastianini, who is an agronomist and oenologist and conducts the visits herself as she speak excellent English. They produce grapes and Extra Virgin Olive Oil and visits include tastings of both wine and oil.
