“The Villa i Cipressi Estate was born in the mid-seventies when Hubert Ciacci decided to expand his father’s small beekeeping business. The turning point came in the 90s, when Hubert acquired more land, in order to produce olive oil and fine wines.
Today, Hubert, Patrizia and their sons Dario and Federico, manage the entire estate, each in their own sectors. The family’s love for nature and great ecological spirit has led to the choice of using solar power as a basic energy supply. Moreover, it has led to the desire to convert the estate’s production to the principals of organic agriculture.
Villa i Cipressi starded to produce Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino in the year 2000. The winery has 3.5 hectares of Sangiovese vines at two locations. One is in the south part of the municipality in the area of Castelnuovo dell’Abate at 250m above sea level. Therefore, its primarily silty sandy soil gives the grapes great structure and an elevated alcohol content. The other is in a wooded area on the western side of the hill at 450m above sea level of mostly limestone but with a slight presence of clay in the soil which produces grapes and wines that are especially fragrant and aromatic.
Both lots afford an ideal location facing south, favouring a perfect maturation of the grapes. In conclusion, the two vineyard, different in soil and in microclimate, allow for a blend which enriches and betters the quality of the wine.”
