Beyond Franciacorta

Pievalta, Poderi di Ghiaccioforte and Montenetto: three challenges undertaken by Barone Pizzini, three different territories united by a single mission

The story of Barone Pizzini has its roots in Franciacorta. It was this rich territory that taught us the importance of diversity, of the expression of the earth, and to translate it into a wine that represents it.

A vision that guides us in each of our projects, which is conceived, realized and pursued according to the balance of the place that hosts it.

Today we are active in three other areas, in which we produce wines with different characters, but with the same principles of respect and sustainability.

From North to Central Italy, from the lowland forest of Montenetto to the windy hills of Maremma, passing through the steep slopes of the Esina Valley – we think of wine as a tribute to the environment, as a representation of a soil that we respect, protect and value in the end product.

In the heart of the Esina Valley, on two opposite banks divided by the river, the Pievalta estate extends for 39 hectares.

A terroir far from the Franciacorta one, also diversified by the microclimates of the two sides of the Esino, which give life to wines with different characteristics.

At Maiolati Spontini, on the left bank, is where most of the hectares are concentrated, with wines of great minerality and fruity freshness.

The other vineyard, on the right bank, is located in San Paolo di Jesi, one of the most suitable areas of the Castelli di Jesi for wine production. The wines of this vineyard are more austere, savory and of great energy.

The vineyards, managed organically and biodynamically, highly respect the terroir of these areas.

Also in Poderi di Ghiaccioforte, in Maremma, the territory is protagonist and reproduced in the bottle.

As in Pievalta, two plots close together but with different characteristics exert the influence of soil and exposure on Sangiovese, the prince vine.

Pian del Dado, which with the fresh air of Monte Amiata gives aromas and freshness to our grapes, and Colonna Aquilaia, ventilated by the sea breeze, which brings structure, sapidity and vigor.

These unique characteristics, combined with organic and biodynamic farming practices, enhance the personality of our wines, true expressions of an extraordinary territory.

Montenetto

Cascina Colombaroli

Between vineyards and woods

A land historically devoted to agriculture that of the Regional Park of Monte Netto, a limestone clayey plateau rising from the Po Valley and hosting one of the smallest Italian DOCs with its 68 hectares of Capriano del Colle.

Here the last protagonist of the Viti & Cultura Bio route, the Montenetto winery, takes shape.

9 hectares of organic vineyard divided among 5 vines: Marzemino, Sangiovese and Merlot for red wines and Trebbiano and Chardonnay for white wines.
