The story behind Podere le Ripi, a biodynamic winery in the heart of Montalcino.
What makes a winery a great success? The love that goes into each bottle that’s produced, careful attention to the production process, and dedication to making sure the land where the vines grow are healthy and able to continue giving their grapes the unique aromas that make up the terroir-driven wines the world loves.
Podere Le Ripi in the Montalcino wine region answers to all of these elements. From the winery’s founder, Francesco Illy, to the young winemaker Sebastian Nasello, the team behind Podere Le Ripi’s Brunello di Montalcino’s wines are fuelled and filled by the enthusiasm and belief in their project: to create memorable, important Brunello di Montalcino vintages using sustainable, complete green energy and approaches. This protects both the life of the land, and the quality of the wines, with the result that for us wine lovers, we can taste and feel the love and dedication that’s behind each vintage of Podere Le Ripi Brunello wine.
