The Nocera, a small estate situated in Maremma, is historically linked to Etruscan culture. In fact, at the end of 1980, a small necropolis with rich furnishings from the Orientalizing period (from the 8th to 6th century BC) was found. The tombs, on top of a sunny hill surrounded by cypresses, honor the history of the ancient Etruscan family, Principi Guerrieri (Warrior Princes) who lived near the necropolis in Casalvecchio.
Now on these areas of rich history, rows of vines produce the Casa Nocera, Casalvecchio and Principe Guerriero wines that with their little duck, the logo of the estate, recall their ancient origins. The vines of the estate were planted on about 5 hectares, on the hills underneath the village Casale Marittimo, at about 200m above sea level. The terroir where the vines are located is composed of sedimentary clays of the Pliocene; it is calcareous, poor in nitrogen and organic substances but rich in potassium, magnesium and assimilable calcium. The vines have southern, southeastern, and southwestern exposure with variable slopes.
The limited surface of the estate allows Pagani to Conscientiously work the vineyard with intensive manpower in all phases: from the budding to the harvest, from the spring pruning to the thinning of the vines. There is no use of chemical herbicides, and manuring is limited to organic
