History & Geography
Ours is a land rich in farming tradition where sharecropping families lived and worked in the countryside around Montalcino. Mauro Brunelli and Anna Savini, owners of the Brunelli Estate, both come from farming families who have always lived in Montalcino. Their families abandoned the cultivation of land at the end of the Sixties to dedicate themselves to other activities, as many locals did. In 1964, the Brunelli family moved to Martoccia a small farm of about three hectares. In 1995, together with Luca, only child of Anna and Mauro, they bought more land where they planted vines.Currently, the Brunelli Estate covers 25 hectares of land. 10 hectars are vineyards, part as Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G. Other 4 Ha are part of the property in the Montecucco area. The rest is olives groves and woodland.
