The Fanti estate, owned by the homonym family since the early '800, has always been a benchmark in the production of wine, extra-virgin olive oil and cereals in the area of Montalcino..In the early seventies Filippo Fanti, the current owner, took the lead of
the family company and marked and important turning point.In fact Filippo decided to focus on the quality of each step of the production process of the wine and of the olive oil starting from the soil, replanting the vineyards and the olive trees after a careful selection of the most suitable plots of land within his 300 hectares property.
The current extension of the vineyards adds up to 50 hectares. 80% of this area is planted with Sangiovese, in accordance to the local tradition of Montalcino while other international red grape varieties and white local varieties are grown on the remaining 10 hectares. The genuine passion for agriculture led the Fanti family to an extremely respectful approach to the environment which is proven by the dramatic reduction in the use of any chemical treatment in favour of traditional mechanical agronomical practices and organic fertilizers.
The commitment to quality keeps being the guideline of the wine making process in the modern and functional new cellar where tradition and innovation meet to take the best out of the grapes.
The sorting tables, the fermentation stainless steel vats and pumping over system planned by Filippo Fanti himself, the carefully selected oak casks, the chemical laboratory and the attention for the details grant the Fanti wines always mirror the flavours and aromas of the grape and of the territory
