IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Brand Description

Founded in 2011, the Ridolfi farm dates back centuries. It was the property of the historic Ridolfi family, nobles from Florence who had considerable land holdings in Montalcino. Ridolfi winemaker Gianni Maccari is one of the last disciples of Giulio Gambelli, whom many believe was the greatest Tuscan winemaker of all time. And when owner Giuseppe brought Maccari on board, he offered him carte blanche. Maccari immediately set about building a brand-new, state-of-the-art winemaking facility, purchasing casks (mostly large format botti from top French, Austrian, and Italian coopers), and introducing organic growing practices in the vineyard. The estate covers 35 hectares, with 21 planted to vine. Of these, 13.5 hectares are devoted to the production of Brunello, with a single hectare devoted to Rosso di Montalcino. The oldest vines on the property were planted in 2001. Lying at the northern foot of the hilltop city of Montalcino, the soil types fall into the "classic" category: A mix of clay, limestone, and sand, ideal to produce long-lived Sangiovese with rich flavor. Although the farm is not organic certified (and Maccari has no plans to obtain certification), organic farming practices are employed in the vineyards.
