Love of the land and passion for wine. Everything begins here, in tending the promising and rugged land of the Maremma with the desire to explore its full potential.
It is a project that was conceived more than twenty years ago, when owner Stefano Sincini promised himself he would one day produce his own label. Today, this is Pianirossi: a reality that extends over 40 hectares in the hills of Montalcino, with its commercial farmstead already well-known for its wines, and a charming set of villas derived from a historic farmhouse estate.
