Podere Sante Marie Colleoni
The Santa Maria company, which has always been known to the Montalcinians as "le Sante Marie", was born from the desire to lead a life in symbiosis with the rhythms of nature. In 1995, within the company body, an ancient vineyard in Brunello was accidentally discovered. This allowed, after the preparation of the land in respect of the centuries-old terraces supported by dry stone walls, to create new vineyards. In 1999 the company bought other plots of land in Sant’Antimo, in particular olive groves for the production of extra virgin olive oil. Currently, after a patient work of manual recovery, a consequence of the company's choice to preserve the ancient crop varieties present, the olive grove is slowly recovering its original vigor by producing olives of excellent quality. In 2000 begins the production of Brunello di Montalcino wine, marketed from 01-01-2005. They currently cultivate 3 hectares of vineyards and 2.5 hectares of olive groves. The production method is natural.
“Our next goal is to use absolutely nothing. We would like to create a natural balance where the "good ones" and the "bad ones" take care of each other ".
This is, in a nutshell, what they try to convey with their Brunello di Montalcino and with all the wines they produce, from the earth to the bottle, without ever betraying these principles!
If you have the opportunity to open one of their bottles, perhaps in good company, they hope that you will be able to grasp the essence of their work and their "non-intervention", to give you a wine that represents what nature gives to them best.
