The word CAULIO derives from the ancient Latin language, meaning the branch of the vine. The central region of Tuscany was cultivated with vineyards by the Etruscans in ancient times. They gave the area the name “ Clante” and from this Etruscan word we have come to the modern word “Chianti” which is the name of one of the most important wine regions in Italy.
