It all began...
... in 1968 with Carlo Antonini - a passionate teacher of agriculture and beekeeping, who bought the old properties from the old noble family Conti Guidi in Tuscany. This noble family also gave his name to the village of Cerreto Guidi in the Medioevo. An authentic place in the heart of Tuscany.
In addition to his passion for teaching, Carlo also had a great passion for viticulture, which he passed on to his son Alberto Antonini.
Today, Alberto and his wife Alessandra run the Poggiotondo winery, respecting the Tuscan winemaking tradition. They live together with their three children Angelika, Margherita and Carlo in the main house of the estate.
Pure expression of the Chianti region
The vineyards of Poggiotondo are cultivated according to the principles of organic farming. The aim is always to produce wines with a strong link to the region. This results in wines that become the symbol of a respected and given terroir.
Alberto and Alessandra have 28 hectares of vineyards and have focused on local grape varieties:
- A small part Trebbiano
All wines are vinified according to the classic, original "Chianti recipe".
After 3 years of conversion, Poggiotondo has made it: since 2014, this winery has been certified organic. Poggiotondo has focused on protecting the soil with its natural, lively, balanced fruit quality and active microbiology.
The principles applied in the vineyards are also in harmony in the wine cellar. Concrete tanks are used for fermentation - large roasted oak barrels and concrete tanks for ageing. Commercial products such as yeasts, enzymes, etc. are not found at Poggiotondo.
