In the heart of Maremma, Jacopo Biondi Santi and his children are writing a new chapter in their family’s history of winemaking excellence.
The Castle of Montepò, in the countryside of Scansano, is an authentic and noble Tuscany, where the lands become vineyards of legend.
The estate's 50 hectares of vineyards are exclusively dedicated to three varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and a unique and precious clone: Sangiovese Grosso BBS11, where Jacopo Biondi Santi found the ideal conditions for the grape-terroir interaction to crown his ambitious wine enhancement project.
Creating a great wine means protecting its natural environment and terroir, while also caring for collective well-being.
