The origins of the estate are closely linked to the life of Professor Riccardo Paccagnini, ancestor of the Tiezzi family, considered a "pioneer of Brunello": he was responsible for the birth and marketing in 1870 of the first wine with the label "Brunello", which obtained numerous awards also beyond the Alps.
The current company, founded in the eighties by Enzo Tiezzi, an agronomist and oenologist, covers 10 hectares, 3 of which are cultivated with olive groves and 6 with vineyards, divided into three farms: Cerrino, Cigaleta and Soccorso, heart and jewel of company. All the vineyards are bred with great love and attention, manually performing pruning, thinning and harvesting of the grapes.
The production philosophy followed by Enzo Tiezzi is the traditional one, which requires the fermentation of the grapes in wooden vats and the aging in large Slavonian oak barrels.
The three vineyards are located in different areas of the Ilcinese territory: Cerrino and Cigaleta are located 3 km from Montalcino to 350 meters above sea level; Vigna Soccorso, instead, is adjacent to the center of Montalcino, 500 meters above sea level, cultivated as a small tree, in order to limit its production and enhance its aesthetic appearance.
Vigna Soccorso looks like a stepped garden, surrounded by stone walls, roses, aromatic herbs, forest fruits, fruit trees: all fragrances that magically characterize in the glass the most representative wine of the winery.
