Francesco Guicciardini, politician, diplomat and statesman from Florence, in his last years (1537-1540) retired in Arcetri and Poppiano where he wrote part of his masterpiece Historia d'Italia, the first historical work analyzing the Italian events in the wider frame of the great European policy. This wine, produced in Poppiano, the land he owned, is meant as a tribute to their eminent Ancestor, the father of modern historiography.
