Italy, Tuscany

Established 1951


In 1999, Compagnia del Vino expanded its presence in Tuscany purchasing an estate of about 20 hectares in one of the zones with a long wine tradition and an enormous margin of improvement: the Maremma. This estate, located in the municipality of Magliano in Toscana, was named Grillesino (tanks to the river Grillese that flows in proximity of the Estate) and is focused on the production of Morellino di Scansano, the only Tuscan DOCG– together with Brunello di Montalcino – that can be produced only using Sangiovese in pureness. Thanks to our collaboration with the Faculty of Agriculture of the Florence University and the institute of enologie de Bordeaux, we identified the agricultural techniques more suitable to the characteristics and to the needs of any single variety (especially for Sangiovese and Cabernet) in relation to climate and to soil of this captivating wine growing area of Tuscany.
