From the Middle ages to the present day
In the second half of the 20th century, Marquise Nerina Corsini inherited the Salviano and Titignano estates from her father. After her marriage to Marquis Enrico Incisa della Rocchetta, former producer of the famous Sassicaia wine, a project to modernise the estate was launched. Since 2015, the estate has been managed by her son, Marquis Giovanni Incisa della Rocchetta and his wife Marquise Tara. With renewed energy and resources, they have created infrastructures and re-established the corporate culture.
Wheat, tobacco, olive oil and wine
The Salviano estate and Titignano Castle buildings were constructed in the Middle Ages by the Montmarte family. In the early 19th century, the entire property, which extends over 2000 hectares, was purchased by the princely Corsini family. The estate’s historical decision-making centre is in Salviano and, under the guidance of the Corsini family, it became a thriving company specialising in the production of wheat, tobacco, olive oil and wine. As the sources from that period demonstrate, at the beginning of the 20th century the white wine of Salviano was already widely known for its quality, both in Italy and around the world.
The Salviano estate is now the wine production centre and the Titignano Castle with its Ancient Village is an important agritourism site and an extraordinary location in the heart of Italy.
