The Ficomontanino property was purchased in the 1980s by Ruggero Giannelli, who lives by the philosophy of buongusto or “good life,” born of a love of the land and the life it brings. The Giannelli family has nurtured this land for three generations. Today, Ruggero is joined by his son, Alessandro, and grand-daugther, Maria Sole. Maria Sole uses the traditions of her grandfather alongside modern innovations. Luciano Bandini is the winemaker.
Ficomontanino is located in Chiusi, in the eastern part of the province of Siena, in the Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG. The vineyard follows the rounding of the hills with south to southwest exposure and is located at 1000 foot elevation. The Giannellis adhere to the philosophy that wine is made in the vineyard and restrict their vinification to only that which preserves the characteristics of the grapes they harvest. Ficomontanino’s Chiantis are fruit-driven and approachable, with floral and red fruit characteristics.
