The winery

Montevertine is located in the heart of the Chianti hills, in the Municipality of Radda in Chianti at 425 meters high. The town was certainly inhabited since the 11th century. In fact, traces of the original construction still remain, certainly of a defensive nature, later transformed into a rural dwelling. Montevertine was purchased in 1967 by Sergio Manetti, then an industrial iron and steel company, as a holiday home. He restored the house in order to make it habitable and immediately planted two hectares of vineyard and set up a small cellar with the idea of producing some wine for his friends and customers. The first vintage produced, 1971, was discreet and Sergio Manetti decided to send some bottles to Vinitaly in Verona through the Siena Chamber of Commerce. It was immediately a success and so thrilled Mr. Manetti that after a few years he abandoned his primary activity to devote himself solely to wine. New vines were made, new cellars, and this without interruption in time, with a business development that continues to this day. The farm, after the death of Sergio Manetti in November 2000, is now run by his son Martino Manetti with the collaboration of Bruno Bini, born in Montevertine and profoundly familiar with the area and the land. Giulio Gambelli has been the consultant and teacher since the foundation of the company, the Montevertine wines were born thanks to his help and his experience. Following his recent death, his work is today continued by the oenologist Paolo Salvi, his pupil, in the wake of our tradition. Three wines are produced with the autochthonous Sangioveto, Canaiolo and Colorino grapes, their names are renowned throughout the world wine scene: Le Pergole Torte (100% Sangioveto), Montevertine and Pian del Ciampolo (majority Sangioveto with addition of Colorino and Canaiolo ).
