The Piccini family live and work in the heart of Chianti. In1882, Angiolo Piccini bought seven hectares of vineyards to produce wines. Mario Piccini, fourth generation, runs one of the most distinctive, dynamic and innovative Italian estates, now converted to organic farming. Together with a selection of drought-tolerant rootstocks, lower density trellising systems, indigenous grape varieties replacing some international ones, aim at a holistic approach towards sustainability practices.
From the cold northern regions to the sizzling south of Sicily, Italy is a kaleidoscope of colours, flavours, grapes and styles from regions such as Barolo to lesser-known Montefalco and Etna.Explore Italy
