Fico wine is a project that is much greater than just wine. The idea of producing a new wine in respectful harmony with the environment was born of Filippo Corsini’s - Duccio and Clotilde’s eldest son - various work experiences while traveling around the world for a year. Returning to Villa Le Corti, the family's home and historic home of the cellars, with this new awareness, Filippo developed a defined project with his father: creating a wine that is the symbol of a new production direction, capable of satisfying the biological rhythms and cycles of the vine and of nature, which has already all that is necessary for the creation of a great wine. For Filippo, the project was not just a modern translation of his family’s winemaking history, but also an authentic philosophy of life. Fico is the acronym of Filippo Corsini but also the name of the fig tree that distinguishes the vineyard chosen to cultivate Fico first and PerFilo two years later. The PerFilo label, as well as that of Fico, was designed by Fiona Corsini. "With his 21 years,” says Duccio Corsini, “and a distinctly open and generous character, he illuminated the already well-traced road of the day, giving life to something new, a project that we will continue to maintain and that it is the right path to follow. For years, Principe Corsini has converted to organic farming, but his approach is a precious heritage: it is the production philosophy for our future. Fico Wine is the gift that Filippo left us. Taking his project and making it a reality was one of the ways to keep him alive too.”
