    After many years working for Gianmarco and Clementine of Le Coste Jacopo Battista founded the company in 2012. Azienda Agricola Ajola near Sugano, a small village between Orvieto and Lago di Bolsena, in the Umbria region framed by Lazio, Marche and Tuscany. In addition to three and a half hectares with vines up to seventy-five years old, he also cultivates olives and fruit. Everything grows at 500 meters above sea level on black and red sandy loam soils of volcanic origin, not far from a still active volcano. The vineyard had been neglected for decades and he spent several years gently regenerating the vines.
