The Piccini family lives and works in the heart of Chianti. Their story starts in 1882, when Angiolo Piccini bought 7 hectares of vineyards and began producing wines under the motto: "It's not how much wine we make, but how much passion we put in our work." Under the guidance of Mario Piccini, the fourth generation of the family, Piccini is today one of the most distinctive, dynamic and innovative Italian estates showing among the top 25 largest Italian producers. 100% family-owned and run, Piccini is distributed in 77 countries around the world with a total annual production of 16M bottles. The Chianti Orange Label is the iconic wine, and reflected the family’s ambition to rediscover Chianti as a contemporary wine. The wines are grounded in tradition yet have an innovative, charming and fun personality, providing a bold and exciting choice for consumers. Tenute Piccini is among the most prominent wine producers in Tuscany, playing a leading role in the production of Chianti, Chianti Classico and Montalcino wines. Moreover, the family has five organic-farmed stand-alone properties, a parallel project to the successful Piccini brand. The family’s philosophy behind the boutique estates is very classical: producing wines that reflect the region, focusing on expressiveness of the grapes variety in relation to the area of origin. Valiano in Castelnuovo Berardenga is crafting premium Chianti Classico wines; Tenuta Moraia, in Maremma, has at its heart Bolgheri production; Villa al Cortile is all about hands-on production of Brunello di Montalcino wines, the winery obtained the Best Brunello – Platinum medal at Decanter WWA 2017. Two estates are dedicated to the volcanic wines production: Regio Cantina - Basilicata is centered on Aglianico del Vulture wines and Torre Mora, located on the Etna Volcano in Sicily, is all about native red Nerello Mascalese and white Carricante grapes.
