Societé Agricola Le Muricce srl • Via Petriolo 66 • 50022 • Greve In Chianti
Since 1998, right after acquiring Clos Vougeot, we considered having our own winery in France. Our contract with Philippe Charlopin did not allow us to make wine ourselves, or at least to put our mark on the end product.
At the same time, the weather conditions in the Bourgogne are not mild enough to really be enthousiastic about “a second home in the South”!
In 1999, we got to know Tuscany; one of the most beautiful regions in the world. We also fell in love with Tuscan wines: the magnificent acidity of the Sangiovese grape that forms the basis of the sublime wine of Il Carbonaione led us to this region.
When we met with Jurij Fior and the estate of Podere Poggio Scalette, where Il Carbonaione is made, we decided to settle down here. Finally, after looking for a long time, we found an estate for sale. We had visited many, but the wonderful location of Le Muricce met all our expectations to a tee.
My wife Rita, our daughters Stefanie and Florence and myself stay at the estate several times a year. And in addition to spending our holidays here, we give it our very best to lift the quality of the wines of Le Muricce to a higher level.
