PIETROSO – TOSCANA – ITALIA
The Pietroso farm was born in Montalcino in the 70s, thanks to the passion for the land, and for wine in particular, of the winemaker Domenico Berni, with the aim of producing fine wines in limited quantities, such as Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino. The company covers a total of 13 hectares, 5 of which are cultivated with vineyards, of which 3.7 are registered in the production of Brunello di Montalcino wine and 1 hectare with olive groves.
The vineyard is planted exclusively with Sangiovese and is located in three distinct areas in the municipality of Montalcino, which allows for a balanced product even in years with particular climatic characteristics. The soils are very suitable, rich in skeleton, enjoy excellent insolation and an extremely favorable microclimate, this favors the production of a high quality raw material, thanks also to constant and careful manual work, green pruning and thinning of the bunches.
