La Fornace

The estate traces its origins to the 18th century. Today it is owned by Fabio Giannetti, third generation of family ownership, who assumed responsibility for the entire winery in 1994 as a very young man. The vineyards are in the heart of the Montalcino hill at 400 meters above sea level. The name of the winery is derived from an ancient brick-firing furnace unearthed on the property.
