Cantine Vittorio Innocenti
The estate lies between Montepulciano and Montefollonico and consists of about 32 hectares of which 12 are specialized vineyards, situated between 330 and 350 metres above sea level on medium-textured clay soils of pliocene origin. The cellar buildings, dating back to end of the 13th century, are in the small, well-preserved medieval town of Montefollonico.The original features of the architectural style and the interior have been maintained as far as possible so that th visitor can enjoy the typical atmosphere of an old Tuscan cellar.A narrow alley-way which now forms part of the building leads to a terraced garden on the ancient walls, where tastings can be held and from which a spectacular view over the whole of the Val di Chiana can be enjoyed.
The owner, Vittorio Innocenti, who gave up teaching philosophy many years ago to dedicate all his time to the estate and the cellars, is helped by his wife Maria Rosa, theatre historian, his son Tommaso, who is currently finishing a course of study enabling him to take over the management of the estate, and his brother Mario, responsible for the care of the vineyards.
