Passion for tradition and innovation
The adventure began in 1996, when Valneo and Tonino Livon, successful winegrowers in Friuli, decided to go new ways and explore new territories. They bought a farm in Tuscany, right in the heart of the historic Chinati Classico area in the municipality of Radda in Chianti. The Azienda Agricola Borgo Salcetino extends over 30 hectares in the district of Lucarelli, 15 of which are vineyards. They gradually modernized the vineyards, in addition to the indigenous Sangiovese and Canaiolo grape varieties, Merlot was planted on a experimental basis.
The buildings underwent intensive restoration work without losing their typical terroir character, and are always the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine at a fireplace, as well as a venue for beautiful celebrations in the tradition of Tuscan and Friulian hospitality.
In the wine cellar
The splendid underground cellar offers the perfect temperature for the ageing in large oak barrels of Chianti Classico and Chianti Classico Riserva, which are strictly produced according to the traditional DOCG guidelines, and for the barriques for Rossole, the new wine in which Sangiovese and Merlot come together. In total, the production reaches 95,000 bottles per year.
