In the early 80s, Carlo Vittori, already a consultant to well-known and consolidated companies, acquired the first land in the southern and southwestern parts of the now famous Montalcino hill near the village of Castelnuovo del Abate. His initiative was supported by the entire Vittori family, actively investing in the development of these lands. So the company Molino di Sant'Antimo was born. At that time, this seemed like a real pioneer adventure, since this area was almost abandoned and occupied by only a few families involved in the cultivation of grapes and olives, but it was not yet included in modern production and marketing schemes.
Today, Molino di Sant'Antimo owns 40 hectares that extend to the Orcia River. Soils are a composition of shale, marl and gravel, rich in mineral salts. The vineyards were planted gradually over the years. The company's philosophy is based on respect for nature and following the ancient traditions laid down by ancestors. The winery has a modern cellar, which allows you to store plenty of wine in its 800 square meters. On the territory reserved for aging, there are large barrels of French oak Allier, barrels of French and American oak.
