PRODUCT OVERVIEW: 
Located between Pienza and Montepulciano on the Strada del Chianti (dei Colli Senesi), Tenuta Santo Pietro’s 72-acre estate was part of a larger farm system laid out by Pope Pius II in the mid-1400s. Today it is a self-sufficient gentleman’s farm with twelve acres of vineyards and twelve acres of olive trees. We purchased the property in 2006 and undertook extensive renovations of the villa and the vineyards.

Our vineyards now include 12 acres of old and new growth vines of Sangiovese, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah grapes. We produce approximately 1,800 cases of wine per year. We pride ourselves on the small production of the highest quality wine we can make on-site in our newly completed winery.

Pio II Chianti is made from 100% Sangiovese grapes and is aged for a maximum of 6 months in large Slavonian oak barrels. This is done to preserve the freshness and bouquet of the fruit while softening and refining the tannins. It has a bright red color tending towards purple due to the aging.

A dry, harmonic, full-flavored, slightly tannic taste that evolves with age and becomes smooth and velvety. The balance brings out its aromas and fruitiness. A perfect pairing with typical Tuscan cuisine such as handmade pasta, polenta, cured meats, aged cheese, and game or red meat.
