Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
"In a land of ancient civilization - full of art and history, which the landscape characterizes with oaks, chestnuts, olive trees, pines, vineyards, among hills dotted with cypresses - flourished in Florence in 1290, from the branch of an ancient Tuscan family, three Ridolfi families. One of them - the Ridolfi di Borgo - originated the Sienese branch so called "from the Contrada", where it had its possessions."

More about the Producer

Tuscan producer Ridolfi was named Gambero Rosso’s ‘Emerging Winery’ in 2021, the same year they were awarded their first Tre Bicchieri for the Ridolfi 2015 Brunello di Montalcino.

Ridolfi’s well established 19 hectare vineyard is located on the northern (coolest) side of Montalcino at an altitude of approximately 300 metres. Winemaker Gianni Maccari, one of the last disciples of Giulio Gambelli (considered one of Tuscany’s greatest winemakers) has been in charge of the cellars since 2014.

The grapes for each Ridolfi wine are picked by hand and selected first in the vineyard and then in the cellar after being destemed.  The berries are not pressed, but fermented whole and the high quality of the grapes allows a very long maceration period: at least 60 days.
