The artisan who made it
At the beginning of the century, three brothers from Milan, Vanni, Carlo and Marco Cattaneo , bought a decadent Tenuta San Jacopo (an 18th century estate) with the idea of bringing it back to its former glory. Their goal was to produce “great Tuscan and Chianti” wines, elegant and refined. They restored the old vines and then planted new ones wherever restoration wasn’t possible and they decided to follow organic cultivation methods. As well as quality wines, the estate also produces a very limited quantity of organic olive oil which they obtain from the olive trees surrounding the vineyards.
