Montenidoli, ‘the mountain of little nests’, 24 hectares of vineyards surrounded by 200 hectares of woodlands.
The Etruscans were the first to discover this treasure and plant vines, then came the Romans and the Knights Templar. Elizabetta and Sergio Faguioli arrived in 1965, heirs to a long farming tradition. The vineyards and olive trees were overgrown and abandoned and needed a great deal of work to bring them back to life. This was done according to organic principles and the first vintage was born in 1971. The wines display a true sense of ‘Terroir’, which is a complex soil high in calcareous deposits which imparts personality and strong minerality to the flavour. These white wines are subtle and complex and age beautifully to produce rich, golden nectars.
