The Pieve Santa Restituta estate was acquired by the Gaja family in 1994. The “white,” rocky soils of this area, in the southwest subzone of the Brunello di Montalcino appellation, were abandoned long ago by the sharecropper mezzadri farmers. But while other crops struggled in the rugged, nutrient-poor terrain, it has proven ideal for the cultivation of grapes destined to become fine wine.

The historic estate, named for the parish church (pieve in Italian) of Saint Restituta, covers 16 hectares and produces a classic blended Brunello di Montalcino and two vineyard-designated wines, Brunello di Montalcino Sugarille and Brunello di Montalcino Rennina.

This Pieve Santa Restituta Media Kit was created by Terlato Wines International for use by U.S. journalists and members of the trade. It offers users an inside look at the Pieve Santa Restituta winery and detailed information on its history, its approach to winemaking and the wines themselves.
