In 1999, the Compagnia del Vino expanded its presence in Tuscany, purchasing an estate of about 20 hectares in one of the zones with storied wine traditions, but also an enormous margin of improvement - the Maremma. The estate, located in the municipality of Magliano in Toscana, was named Grillesino after the river Grillese that flows through the estate. They are focused on the production of Morellino di Scansano, the only Tuscan DOCG aside from Brunello di Montalcino, that can produce wines with 100% Sangiovese. Today their focus is on 3 different varietals: Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Ciliegiolo. All of their wines are considered the ultimate expressions of their terroir. They are all vinified with modern technology and do not undergo any filtration. Today the estate sits at 40 hectares with a total production of approximately 220,000 bottles per year.
