in work, perseverance, skill and quality of the wines produced by our friends growers and producers we find the common bases of our philosophy
Tradition, tie to the territory, good care of the vineyards and the cellar, feature the wines of this Farm, that in 1967, with a few other producers, founded the Consortium "Wine Brunello di Montalcino"
The wine producer Azienda Agricola Capanna is situated on the north side of the Montalcino hill and it is considered one of the best Brunello “cru”. Vineyards are still cultivated with passion and experience at an exclusively family level; no doubt their production is made of exclusive wines.
... our hands move carefully among the green leaves to position the shoots.
Our arms seem to join with other arms: the vineshoots.
And our faces are always looking up to see if it is raining or fine
We suffer so much in bad years, perhaps just as much in good years
Because then it is all down to us...
Chiusi is an ancient, vocated land, whose territory includes this Farm. This Etruscan land 2500 years ago already excelled in the cultivation of the vine: history and territory are essential for the activity of this family Farm. The nature of the soil and the climate were the background to a significant effort in enhancing the existing wine heritage: years of research and testing have resulted in 28 selected clones of Sangiovese, of which 4 pre-phylloxera from an old vineyard sapling having a density of twenty thousand plants per hectare. Everything is joined to a great rigor in the vineyard and in the winery. It is in the cellar that culture and territory blend: its entrance is in fact a real completely preserved Etruscan tomb. There unfolds a series of tunnels obtained in a natural tuff cave with a natural constant temperature and humidity, leading to the real cellar itself, for vinification and aging.
The area's history and the energy of those who once occupied it are kept here and blend with modern viticulture but respectful of the ancient knowledge.

Wines as a mirror of what the territory of Bolgheri has to offer, an area that for climate and soil is among the most dedicated of Tuscany for producing wines of great quality
A life and a passion devoted to agriculture …a life that has its roots in a strong and generous territory, the territory of Montalcino, in one of its most scenic valleys and at the junction of the Ombrone and Orcia rivers.
In the area of Montosoli on the Sienese side of the hill of Montalcino, this young estate is committed to making the Sangiovese grape prince of this territory with passion and dedication.
10 hectares of Sangiovese Grosso interpret the true essence of this vine in a historic area, capturing its peculiarities and nuances. In the Classic area of the Canalicchio, one of the most suitable for the denomination, the fresh microclimate favors an optimal, slow and gradual maturation, developing noble and elegant aromas in the wine.
Sangiovese at a high altitude. Between Mugello and Valdisieve, a land and a wine to be discovered.
The mild climate of Fauglia hills and the short distance from the sea is mirrored on vineyards, managed by organic and biodynamic techniques, originating wines rich in elegant and intense scents.
A long time ago now, in 1963, the founder acquired the territory of the “Campo alla Capanna” località, only a few steps from the Bolgherese street, between Castagneto Carducci and Bolgheri. He paid 9 million old lire, which gave origin to the somewhat nostalgic name of the estate.
Then the family decided to focus on quality by bottling the wine and creating DOC and IGT wines. These wines embody the essence of the typical flavors of the Castagneto and Bolgheri zones, thus giving a new significance to autochthon varieties like Sangiovese and Trebbiano.
Vineyards situated at the basis of the hills surrounding Val di Cornia, in the town of Suvereto, ancient medieval centre, a wine experience matured along the years, great commitment and passion: the result are wines with personality and an excellent quality.

The property Sanlorenzo lies on the south west side of the municipality of Montalcino, at 500m. on the crest of the hills that stretch softly towards the river Ombrone. The land extends on both slopes of the hills : the woods with a northern exposure, towards the Arbia valley, the vineyards exposed south- west and the Maremma.
The farm is located in the territory of Castagneto Carducci, on the Thyrrenian coast, at the foot of the hills and a few miles from the sea.
The business is run on a family basis and has a long agricultural tradition: "it ‘s always an emotion the moment when we implant a new vineyard, to ensure a constant quality over time is necessary now planting the vines which then begin to give full production in a few years".
on the hills that were sacred to the Etruscan fields and vineyards extend between the sea, whose scent can be felt, and the severe Volterra with its cliffs

Azienda Agricola Villanoviana was born in the heart of the Bolgheri DOC, not far from the medieval village of Bolgheri.
It is extended over 6 hectares of vineyards cultivated with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Vermentino and Viogner.
The proximity to the sea and the exposure to the sun give the wine minerality with that pinch of acidity that characterizes the terroir from which they come.
