Paradiso di Frassina is situated 5 km from Montalcino, in a secluded position but within easy reach of the town.
It is owned and run by Giancarlo Cignozzi who previously was involved with the development of such well known producers as Altesino and Caparzo. After working for many years with other producers Giancarlo decided to go it alone and found the beautiful little estate called Frassina. Surrounded by an amphitheatre of vineyards, the old stone house Paradiso di Frassina is a beautifully restored monument to the age old traditions of Tuscan wine making. The estate now comprises of 4.5 hectares of vines including 1 hectare at the top of the famous cru hilltop, Montosoli with its 70 year old vines. Giancarlo is dedicated to the pursuit of perfection in perfect symbiosis with nature. He was awarded organic certification in 2008 after 9 years of developing his organic vineyard based on playing music to the vines. This pioneering work has been such a success that it has attracted the attention of the University of Florence who are now carrying out studies to evaluate the effect of music on vine health and grape quality!
