The Diocesan Institute for the Support of the Clergy of Florence was born in 1985, following the new law on the concordat stipulated by the Italian State with the Catholic Church..

The Institute, heir of the centuries-old parish priests, became in that year the owner of the Pieve di Campoli agricultural company, whose registered office is located in Via Dolfi 5/7, Florence. The extension of the company is about 450 hectares which consist of 7 municipalities. The Pieve di Campoli company includes over 50 hectares of specialized vineyards, located in the Chianti and Chianti Classico areas and over 20,000 olive trees planted on approximately 100 hectares of land scattered throughout the province.

The winery is located in Cortine, Barberino Val d’Elsa (Fi), 5 km from the San Donato exit of the Florence-Siena Autopalio.

The company organization is mainly of a wine-making type, with the production of IGT, Chianti, Chianti Classico, Vinsanto del Chianti Classico and limited production of table wine for direct sales.
