Tiezzi

Region: Toscana

Area: Montalcino

The estate bears the name of its owner, Enzo Tiezzi, a well-known agronomist and enologist from Montalcino, a consultant for estates of outstanding fame, as well as being part of the executive management and Chairman of the Consortium for Brunello di Montalcino.

In the 1980s, Mr Tiezzi decided to set up his own business and established the estate with the purchase of “Cerrino”, the first of the three areas, known as “poderi”, that make up the whole estate as it is today, followed, a few years later, by “Cigaleta” and “Soccorso” land.

The estate consists of three separate “poderi” with a combined surface area of about 10 hectares, situated in different locations throughout the Montalcino district, 5.50 of which are cultivated with Sangiovese (Brunello di Montalcino) and 3 with olive trees.

Cigaleta and Cerrino are about 3 km northeast of Montalcino, along the Brunello road, heading towards Siena, at an altitude of 350 m above sea level.
