Brunello di Montalcino – Canneta
Brunello di Montalcino is produced around the beautiful Tuscan village of Montalcino, in the province of Siena, located about 80 km south of Florence in the Tuscany wine region. Brunello, a diminutive of Bruno (“brown”), is the name that was given locally to what was believed to be an individual grape variety grown in area. . It is made entirely from a local variant of the Sangiovese grape.
THE CANNETA GROUP
The company I MORI was founded in the early 70’s, when the family Giannelli decided to redevelop its small farm, which has gradually grown since then. The company is situated on the hills surrounding Florence, in the Chianti area, and the main crops are, naturally, the vines and olive-trees. In 1997 the family Giannelli bought a new company in Montalcino, the Podere CANNETA, producing Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montalcino.
Today, the Canneta winery is stilla family run business, focused on ensuring the Authenticity and “Tuscanity” of its products.
