The tiny Paradiso di Manfredi farm in Montalcino was purchased in 1950 by Manfredi Martini and his wife, Fortunata, pre-dating Brunello being awarded is DOC in 1968. Today the estate is run by daughter Rosella and her husband Florio Guerrini. Nestled on the hill atop which Montalcino is perched, there are a compact 2.5ha of Sangiovese Grosso vines of which 2ha produce Brunello.
Organic and biodynamic practises are adhered to in the vineyard and very traditional in the winery – wild yeasts, cement tanks and a selection of very old, very large Slovanian oak botte (large barrels). The large oak allows a slow micro-oxygenation, and the Brunellos remain in these barrels for at least three years, sometimes longer (36–40 months for the Brunello; 48–54 months for the Riserva) — these are profound, captivating traditional wines that age magnificently.
