Wine information
Francesco is exactly the sort of winemaker we love. Young, dynamic, hard-working, self-made and a go-getter. Though Francesco was born and raised in Montalcino, his family doesn’t come from a winemaking family. His father originally bought 1 hectare of steep hillside land with sheep, olive trees and a few ancient and abandoned vines for family use. Francesco later discovered this land was within the parameters of DOCG Brunello di Montalcino, so there was only thing to do. This racy and fragrant Brunello with alluring scents of wild red berry, rose, tilled soil and new leather. Vibrant and focused, the palate is elegant and delivers red cherry, plums, star anise and white pepper. A blockbuster!

Robin says "Francesco might be the smallest producer in all of Montalcino. I willingly became a devout fan after a friend recommended his wine. Despite not coming from a winemaking background, he makes some of the best, most artisanal wines that are full of depth and soul. Highly recommended, particularly to those who like producers off the beaten path."
