The history of the casale Terzo
Timeline from 1250 to the present
Our estate holds within it a long-lived history of which we remain the custodians,
juxtaposing our experience in organic.
The origin of the casale
The Borella family and the organic
The Pizzolato family and the organic that continues
A new farmhouse
The medieval base of Casale is being built in the Sienese hills while Tuscany is becoming the cradle region of the Dolce Stil Novo.
Giovanni Borella became the new owner of the winery and planted the first vineyards using the organic method.
Settimo Pizzolato acquires the estate Casale Terzo with the intention of continuing in Tuscany the organic path, already undertaken in the Veneto region for more than 40 years. It was in 2021 that the Pizzolato family joined Borella in the first harvest of Chianti Colli Senesi.
The Casale Terzo will open its doors in an effort to welcome guests from all over the world to the enchantment of the Val D'Elsa in a cozy new farmhouse.

Keepers of history and organic
Our vocation for organic continues in Tuscany
Immerse yourself in the typically Italian-hued Tuscan countryside and taste some good Chianti Colli Senesi-a small, simple luxury, all organic.
Organic is a way of life, a constant attention to the environment, a choice that stems from a personal journey in which respect is the foundation of society. The world of Casale is made up of humility, gentleness, respect for nature and a great passion, that of producing good, organic wine.
Casale is a historic rural building that bears witness to an important past and a destiny that has united two organic wine families: the Borella family and the Pizzolato family. Here the gaze is lost among vineyards and olive trees, along the gentle contours of the Sienese hills. And then the soul finds itself among the quiet of nature and the charm of an ancient casale.
The time has come to indulge in slow time, in an authentic and serene dimension.
The home of organic Chianti
In the heart of the Elsa Valley everything slows down to love a wine with an important history.
Edoardo Pi is the organic Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG from Casale Terzo.
A Tuscan red that combines the tradition of fine production with the innovation of a new bottle dedicated to little Edoardo, son of Settimo Pizzolato and Sabrina Rodelli.
A Tuscan green heart
A Tuscan green heart
The green heart of the Casale Terzo are its vineyards that, with wisdom and skill, have been tended and raised organically for decades: a sign, this, of a deep love and respect for nature and its fruits.
The soil on which these vineyards grow is a typical hilly terrain, originating from the crumbling of rock. This clay soil also contains silt: this makes it particularly fertile and suitable for growing vines as it retains water, especially during the hot summers typical of Tuscany.
The Organic Olive Groves
The extra virgin olive oil from the Casale Terzo comes from the 1,000 olive trees that surround the estate, organically grown in a harmonious embrace with the vineyard, drawing a landscape with an ancient flavor.
The resulting oil expresses the historicity of a cultivation that has defined the landscape of Tuscany for centuries and reveals the authenticity of a certified organic product. The olives, obtained from several typically Tuscan cultivars, are processed in the oil mill. The oil from the Casale Terzo is bottled in dark packaging to maintain the fragrance of the soft pressing for a long time.
