This is a small town in the province of Grosseto in the Italian region Tuscany, located about 150 km south of Florence and about 45 km southeast of Grosseto. With a population of just 4,046, it is only 217 m (712 ft) above sea level.

The comune’s name derives probably from the Latin Caput Album or Campus Albus (White Cape or Field, respectively), due to the white alabaster stone dug in the area.

Conquered by the Spaniards in 1555. it was assigned to Cosimo I de’ Medici as part of his new Grand Duchy of Tuscany. The city subsequently decayed and the area depopulated due to the presence of malaria.

It became part of the Kingdom of Italy in 1860, becoming an independent comune in 1960.

The hills around the commune is part of a government sanctioned  Denominazione di origine controllata (DOC) that produces red, white and rosé wines as a dessert Vin Santo style. The red and rosé wines are a blend of at least 50% Sangiovese with other local grape varieties, such as Abrusco, permitted to make up to 50% of the remainder.
