Poggio Il Castellare
Here, wine is truly the story of a family and passion that knows no bounds. The Baroncini family, producers since 1489, arrived in Montalcino in 1998, where Bruna Baroncini fulfilled her dream of producing Brunello, “the king of reds”. She from San Gimignano, after having crossed the Etruscan lands of Tuscany where she owns other vineyards, she arrives in Montalcino making the journey of Sangiovese. “My life goes hand in hand with my journey of Sangiovese in Tuscany, a vine that always amazes me for the diversity of expression depending on the Tuscan land where it grows”.
“While I was about to explore the “wine continent” of Montalcino, I came across some beautiful hills which, due to their sweetness, seemed to have been created to host vineyards, in fact my imagination led me to see you planted a picturesque circular vineyard. As they say in the Montalcinese dialect, “a girapoggio”.
Bruna Baroncini with intelligence, work and targeted choices, builds something beautiful and important and finds important “allies” in her path, the best there can be: the family. “For some years the whole family has been following me on this journey of mine: my mother, ninety years old, who never stops giving pearls of experience and wisdom; my partner, precious for his experience of corporate and organizational life; my nephew Samuele who for some years has been working with me in the company. He too, with great passion, proves that he has already taken up the family mania: working as winemakers in Tuscany and especially in Montalcino, where we have put down strong roots for our future”.
“Our philosophy is to transmit the values of tradition and to protect native vineyards and traditional vinifications. With passion and dedication we make our journey enhancing the excellence of the territory.
In our estate, you will enjoy drinking a good glass of wine while watching the hill of Montalcino, maybe at sunset.
