Domaine Cerbanoia was founded in Tuscany in 1977 by Diego Molinari, a former pilot for the airline Alitalia. He planted vines from another Italian winery, Domaine Biondi-Santi. He aims to honor the wine of the Montalcino region. The grapes are harvested by hand. The wine is not filtered. Since 2015, Domaine Cerbaiona has been owned by a group of American investors with a passion for wine. While remaining true to the spirit of Cerbaiona, they bring a modern touch to this wine representative of Tuscany andItaly.
Geographical location of the Cerbaiona Estate
The Cerbaiona Estate is located on a ridge 400 meters above sea level, northeast of Montalcino in Italy. It covers three hectares of vineyards and twelve hectares of woods and olive groves. The Sangiovese grape particularly reveals the exceptional character of this privileged Tuscan location. The clay schist soils, slightly sandy, are conducive to the creation of great wines. Thanks to this protected location, the estate benefits from a great terroir. The Cerbaiona Estate is located in an intermediate area between the north and the south of the region, where the wines of the DOCG Brunello di Montalcino appellation are produced.
The wines of Domaine Cerbaiona
The Cerbaiona Estate produces red wines, mainly with theDOCG Brunello di Montalcino appellation. It also produces Rosso di Montalcino, in smaller quantities. The wines of Brunello di Montalcino are made from Sangiovese, the characteristic grape variety of this region of Italy. The Brunello di Montalcino wine is aged for 30 months in oak barrels. The result is a dense and powerful wine with pronounced tannins. The Rosso di Montalcino wine is also 100% Sangiovese. The wine is aged in barrels for 18 months. The Toscana IGT wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
