No one could ever speak of this estate without mentioning Elisabetta Fagiuoli. She is the soul of the place, an inexhaustible font of energy and creativity. In 1965 she and her partner Sergio came to Montenidoli to create a refuge for troubled youth. In 1971 she produced her first wine, one that caught the imagination of Italy’s greatest critics. To this day she produces the very best Vernaccia di San Gimignano, along with a range of other marvelous wines, not least her rose. She and her dedicated team work all 59 acres of vineyards organically. The vineyards themselves are surrounded by 500 acres of woodland, covering the slopes of a hill opposite the storied towers of San Gimignano. 75% Sangiovese, 20% Canaiolo, 3% Trebbiano gentile, 2% Malvasia Bianca. The two red grapes and the two white grapes are specified in the old Chianti regulations, after the formula developed by Barone Ricasoli. It ferments on the skins, with a long maceration in tank. A savory wine with a rich nose, soft, and with a long finish. Perfect with tomatoes and thus ideal with many Mediterranean dishes. Ideal for barbecues and with grilled fish, meats, of vegetables. A wine for every occasion, light on the palate and pleasant to drink.
