About Castello di Monastero:

Over the last 15 years, Lionello Marchesi has garnered worldwide acclaim for his Tuscan wines. Marchesi's achievements in viticulture, enology and agro-tourism began in 1984 with the purchase of a medieval village in the noble Montepulciano region.
Today, Marchesi brings knowledge and anthusiasm to all of his current Tuscan properties: Castello do Monastero, Coldsole, and Poggio alle Sughere.
Castello di Monastero produces wines from the classified areas of Chianti and Chianti Classico, as well as the acclaimed Super-Tuscan offering, Infinito.
