The vineyards of Fattoria di Sammontana are located along the hills that border the Arno River, in the community of Montelup in the Colli Fiorentini subzone, 20km to the south west of Florence. It all started over 100 years ago when the Polish nobleman Michele Dzieduszycki (try saying that after a couple of glasses) moved his family from the imperial court of Vienna to Tuscany- and started making wine. Andrea, the fourth generation winemaker, has now started to implement some changes. Both the Chianti and Alberese have been certified organic from the 2012 harvest, and they are also doing some trials with biodynamics in some of their vineyards. Delicious wines made by lovely people.
