Aldo Bianchi, a native of San Gimignano, left Tuscany before the Second World War to seek fortune in the North of Italy. In 1960, he came back to the area for a wedding and was enchanted by the view from the terrace of Castello di Monsanto. It was love at first sight which made him buy the property within a few months. But if Aldo was bewitched by the landscape, Fabrizio, his son, immediately fell in love with the wines he found in the cellar. Thanks to a passion for wine handed down to him by his grandmother, who came from Piedmont, and to an innate entrepreneurial spirit, Fabrizio, together with the untiring help of his wife Giuliana, started to plant new vineyards and convert the numerous farmhouses.


In 1989, Laura, Fabrizio’s daughter, started to work in the company and gradually learned the land, the people who worked it and her father, the marvels and difficulties of the natural evolutive process which transforms grapes into wine. The 2013 vintage of this wine was a Top 100 Wine of the Year, Wine Spectator, and we believe this 2015 is even better!!!
