About the winemaker

Montenidoli is on the ‘hill of the little nests’; higher up the slopes are the Triassic terrains, the oldest in Tuscany, rich with minerals for red wines. Elisabetta Fagiuoli and her family arrived in 1965 and have worked tirelessly to capture the wonderful potential of the terroir. Montenidoli’s vineyards are organically grown. For fifty years no herbicide, insecticides or any other chemicals have been used. Sunlight and clean air are perceived to be the best medicine to make the vines healthy, strong, and resistant to disease and bad weather. This is Chianti made in the ancient traditional way, by including a small portion of white grapes (Malvasia) in the crush.
