This wine is the story of winemaker: Donatella Cinelli Colombini, the founder who always dreamt of producing a perfectly harmonic Tuscan wine in a winery that employs only women. In 2003 she won the Oscar for the best Italian producer awarded by AIS Bibenda and in 2012 the International Vinitaly Prize. In 2014 she was nominated ‘’Cavaliere della Repubblica Italiana’’.
