The wines are produced exclusively from the company's grapes. All operations in the vineyard, including the grape harvest, are carried out by hand and vinified within the company cellar. The rosé and red wines are produced with only Sangiovese grapes, with the exception of "Sangue di Leone", in which there is a consistent percentage of merlot .
Having almost exclusively Sangiovese available, red wines are differentiated from each other through the selection of particles with unique characteristics of soil and microclimate. In fermentation and aging we try to respect these uniqueness of "parcel Sangiovese" also through the use of different maturation and refinement techniques.
The art of flavors from the earth to the bottle
Letting yourself be carried away by the river of flavors, admiring Pienza at sunset is something so magical and complex that it would need 'a pen from the past' to be minimally understood..
Our vineyards in Pienza
The soul of our wines
The extension of the vineyards is 13 hectares. The Sangiovese with 10 cultivated hectares is the grape of reference, a mirror for Siena's oenological culture. Merlot, which has become part of the Tuscan tradition from more than 50 years , extends for 1 hectare.
Since 2018 we have decided to focus on Vermentino to produce our white wine, planting one hectare and radically changing the previous setting for this wine which was produced by trebbiano and malvasia . Those, who are also grown on 1 hectare, will be used exclusively for our Vin Santo .
The farm of Palazzo Massaini is located in one of the most prestigious areas of Chianti, just inside Palazzo Massaini it is possible to taste our wines and combine them with the local products, an enchanting and fascinating way to relax in the wide open spaces surrounded by sunsets and breathtaking views or inside our hall.
