The idea of having an estate of their own was born from the desire to give shape, with their work, to something that would represent them earnestly. The intent was to find a place where to establish a small farm with a great vision: produce an “authentic wine”, resulting from the bond between man’s work and the territory.
Finding the place has not been easy, two years of search in various areas of Tuscany, many places visited and possibilities explored but nothing that was really convincing them. Then, in 2000 a hill that had been abandoned 10 years before was offered to them, almost as a jest, as they were fields that nobody was interested in anymore. Just a few days and some research into these slopes covered by thorns were enough to understand that the right place was finally found.
Campinuovi was born: 25 hectares on the hills at the feet of Monte Amiata, 20 km south of Montalcino. The estate faces the wide Maremma plains, and at the moment cultivates 9.5 ha as a vineyard with Sangiovese and about 10% of the vine population covered by other black grapes such as Colorino, Pugnitello, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and an ancient white variety, Ansonica.
