Casale1485 is located in Casale delle Macchie near Colfiorito, a small town in the centre of Italy, in the region Umbria, close to Tuscany and not more than two hours far from Rome and Florence. The number 1485 refers to the year in which the first written documents concerning the Casale delle Macchie date back.
Distinctive conditions such as a soil rich in minerals, a specific altitude that ranges from 780 m and 850 m and mild temperatures allow the area around Colfiorito to be an unequalled area for cereals and pulses.
