The historic Fattoria del Cerro is part of the important enological constellation of the Unipol insurance group, which develops not only in the Poliziana area, but also in the Pisan area with Monterufoli, in Montalcino with La Poderina and in Umbria, in Montefalco with Còlpetrone. As for the parent company, in all satellite companies there is an ethical code that is respected at heart, which in the wine sector translates into the utmost care of the vine and the lowest possible environmental impact. Although the extension of the land is mind-boggling, as many as 181 hectares located among the most suitable lieu-dits of the area, in the cellar we work with craftsmanship, where we find Raffaele Pistucchia recommended by Riccardo Cotarella, one of the most renowned winemakers of the Peninsula. On the tasting front, we record a clash all in the family, with the long-awaited return of the Nobile Riserva, which follows the ever-green Antica Chiusina, both children of the amazing 2015 vintage.
