About the Winery:
The Villa I Cipressi Estate was born in the mid-seventies when Hubert Ciacci decided to expand his father’s small beekeeping business. The turning point came in the 90s, when Hubert acquired more land, in order to produce olive oil and fine wines.

Today, Hubert, Patrizia and their sons Dario and Federico manage the entire estate, each in their own sector. The family’s love for nature and great ecological spirit has led to the choice of using solar power as a basic energy supply. Moreover, it has led to the desire to convert the estate’s production to the principles of organic agriculture.

Villa i Cipressi started to produce Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino in the year 2000. The winery has 3.5 hectares of Sangiovese vines at two locations. One is in the south part of the municipality in the area of Castelnuovo dell’Abate at 250m above sea level. Therefore, its primarily silty sandy soil gives the grapes great structure and elevated alcohol content. The other is in a wooded area on the western side of the hill at 450m above sea level of mostly limestone but with a slight presence of clay in the soil which produces grapes and wines that are especially fragrant and aromatic. Both lots afford an ideal location facing south, favouring a perfect maturation of the grapes.
