The Pierazzuoli brothers Enrico and Dario have been managing this estate, to the east of Empoli and north of Florence, for about twenty years. Their aim has simply to be able to represent this beautiful terroir into their wines with as little intervention as is required. Their results have seen them develop a superb reputation for authentic and highly-polished wines that are never overly manicured or overly-oaked or too concentrated. This is not just by design: their cool climate keeps the acidity in the grapes and translates to a fresher wine style as a result. At between 200 and 400 metres elevation, their 200 hectares of land provide a wealth of wildlife and varied micro-climates and soil types.
