Our Greppone Mazzi estate lies east of the medieval and picturesque town of Montalcino. Greppi is Italian for ‘rugged slopes'—the ideal name for the rugged slopes of the region. In the courtyard of this estate's 18th century villa sits an ancient cistern that is adorned with a distinct ironwork star. This icon symbolizes the heavenly ambitions of winemakers, and is depicted on the label of the Estate's sole wine, Greppone Mazzi Brunello di Montalcino.
Hot summer days and nights cooled by sea breezes develop the complexity, balance and concentration typical of the famed Brunello wines. We have a 50-year-old Brunello vine on the estate which provides mother stock for new plantings.
