Montecalvi, Toscana

The Estate

Montecalvi is a small wine estate in the heart of Chianti, specifically in the hilly area of Greve in Chianti, 20 km south of Florence. The south-westerly facing estate covers 10 hectares of which 3,5 hectares are vineyards. There are four small vineyards (one of which has been planted in 1932 on small terraces) at an altitude of around 300m above sea level, on land derived mostly from sandstone.

Philosophy

The vigneron's mission is to unveil the unique character that arise from the interaction between place and grape variety

The People

Jacqueline Bolli and Daniel O'Byrne conduct this jewel with passion and devotion. The Bolli family bought the Montecalvi estate in 1988. Since the 1991 harvest there has been a steady growth which has reached a qualitative standard in recent years that would be difficult to match anywhere.
