Vecchie Terre di Montefili
A key, a promise and invitation to become part of our journey. Deep roots, secrets to reveal and stories to tell through Chianti Classico.
Montefili grew from a passion for great wines, a desire to take people to special places and a vision of the future.
An obsession for Sangiovese drives everything we do: this is Chianti Classico’s bright future.
We have started a new chapter for this noble grape and denomination, to create a revolutionary experience. We grow and focus on Sangiovese over 12.5 hectares of vines. Planted at 500m asl outside Panzano, this is one of the zones highest and most picturesque hills.
Born with a broad history from the 13th century, with old vines dating back to 1975, and developed under a new ownership in the early 2010s, involving an exciting female winemaker, the estate has been totally revitalized and reimagined. The ethos is sustainability and minimal intervention – we listen to what the land has to say and pave a way for its poetry to be present in the glass.
We bottle three Chianti Classico, 2 SuperTuscans, and occasional blends depending on the year’s harvest. We are committed to delivering wines that serve up a sense of place; that tell an uninhibited story of nature unfurling; and that never stops evolving.
Our ethos is altruism, our methodology simple - we listen to our land, and we bear witness to what it wishes to express. Our approach is a bold path of confidence and patience, we only put on the vines what we’d want in our glass.
