“The Soul of Chianti” is a loving title given to a special, special lady. That lady is Elisabetta Fagiuoli. This amazing woman has been in charge of the town’s most notable winery, Montenidoli since the 1960’s (celebrating her 50th vintage in 2021!) and though she’s viewed as an icon, she says winemaking is no different for her than making soup– a family tradition that has been passed from down generation to generation and just feels like a part of her.
San Gimignano is a special place– it’s so high in elevation that the sea never reached the heights of most vineyards– so you have incredibly rocky, hard Triassic soil that dates back over 350 million years. Because of this, the wines made in San Gimignano are some of the boldest, strongest and most rich expressions anywhere in the world. This is a perfect place to grow memorable, age-worthy Sangiovese.

Pure and elegant, with silkiness offset by refined tannins and vibrant acidity, setting the stage for ripe black cherry, blackberry, Mediterranean herb, iron and tobacco aromas and flavors. Shows superb balance and length. Sangiovese. Drink now through 2043.
