Owner: Rossella Bencini Tesi

Viticulture: Biodynamic


Fattoria di Bacchereto, was born on the Tuscan hills of Montalbano, a few kilometers from Carmignano.


The estate originated in the 15th century with the Medici family. From 1925 the company became the property of the Bencini Tesi family, and the turning point took place in the 1960s with the production of oil and wine.


Today the reins have passed to Rossella Bencini Tesi, which since 2002 begins to practice biodynamics by revolutionizing the agricultural system that preceded it.


The estate expands on 167 hectares located at an altitude between 200 and 500 meters above sea level, which include woods, orchards, chestnut groves, olive groves and finally vineyards, which occupy about 8 hectares. Here there are vines of Trebbiano, Sangiovese, black Canaiolo and Cabernet Sauvignon. On these soils, green manure, sulphur, and copper are practiced for diseases and the eradication of weeds exclusively by hand.


In the cellar a wine is produced from indigenous yeasts, without any aid of chemistry. The wine is stored in large wooden barrels and bottled without any filtration. The cornerstone of the estate is Carmignano, a wine obtained from a blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo nero and Cabernet Sauvignon, which perfectly reflects the principles of biodynamics and capable of expressing a great personality
