PIETRASERENA

San Gimignano

Located in San Gimignano, the Pietraserena estate occupies two slopes of the hill rising to the North-North East of the town. In 1966 the estate was smaller in size, about 7 hectares, but over time it came to incorporate neighbouring or adjacent plots to reach the current extension of about 40 hectares – 30 hectares of vineyards, the rest olive groves and copse. Set in the heart of the San Gimignano municipality, at first the main grape variety grown here was Vernaccia di San Gimignano, the first Italian wine to obtain the DOC (Controlled Designation of Origin) mark. Later we added Sangiovese, one of the principal grapes in Tuscany and all of Italy. Grown in many different varieties – from the oldest and most traditional to Sangiovese Grosso – in other areas this grape is the basis for wines of great international renown, and at Pietraserena it gives rise to our most representative “crus”: Caulio and Poggio al Vento. Each of the many individual vineyards of the estate has its own name – Arca, Quercia, Casine, Ripida, Poggio, Ventaglio, Del Sole, del Moggi, Vigna Nuova, Piano di Fata, Pancole and Lignite – and produces a single wine, which are then skilfully used to make the blends that are the trademark of our bottles.

San Gimignano is a hill town in Tuscany located South-West of Florence. Surrounded by 13th-century walls, the heart of its historic centre is the Piazza della Cisterna, a triangular-shaped square enclosed by medieval houses.
