Gianni Brunelli, a man of many interests, established Siena’s Osteria ...
A few years ago, the estate expanded with the purchase of the ‘Podernovone’ vineyard, located further south in Montalcino. The 4ha property sits at 350m above sea level and has a magnificent view of Monte Amiata. Podernovone’s soil is comprised of calcareous-marl and schist, which reflects light and heat, leading to a warmer site. ‘Le Chiuse di Sotto,’ a 2ha plot, is cool and airy, bringing bright acidity to the blend. As with Pacenti, the Brunelli’s vineyard sites allow them to blend north and south to achieve great balance, no matter what the vintage brings.
