The Mancini family’s winemaking history began at the end of the nineteenth century when the first cellar was built in San Polo, and with the planting of the first vineyards at Podere della Filandra. It continued with the subsequent acquisition of the property at Campriano and, most recently, at Muciafora. Since 1926 the winery has been committed to the production of Chianti doc, using only cement tanks. In the 70’s Amadio Mancini, with his wife Patrizia’s support, took over the winery’s management and immediately began modernizing and improving cultivation and production techniques. These were big growth years thanks to the renewal of the vineyards and the planting of the new olive groves. Today, the winery is managed by Amadio’s daughters, Anastasia, Alessia and Roberta Mancini who, after years at their father’s side, inherited the responsibility perhaps sooner than they would have liked. Thanks to their father’s teachings and his clear directions, they are now able to follow in his footsteps, each in her own way, working toward fulfilling the winery’s objectives.
Organic and sustainable farming. These are the key words describing the work done at the winery.
