It all began when, in 1998, Roberto Cipresso decided to buy and restore the ruins of an old farmhouse in one of the most beautiful places in the Montalcino countryside, between Castelnuovo dell'Abate and Sant'Angelo in colle, with a enchanting towards Monte Amiata. 

The house of Poggio al Sole, now a magnificent Resort dedicated to hosting vine and wine enthusiasts from all over the world, is in fact flanked by the vineyard - a jewel of just one hectare in size - which produces the grapes destined for Brunello di Montalcino ; the Rosso, on the other hand, is obtained from the fruit of another plot, also with a surface area of ​​less than one hectare and with an extremely suggestive aesthetic, located near the Abbey of Sant'Antimo.


The vineyards were planted in two different terroirs in terms of soil composition, position, exposure, climatic requirements. Both require very low unit productions, just one bottle per plant, and careful and accurate agronomic management. 

The latter, while not referring to either the organic or biodynamic regime, is nonetheless inspired, albeit without specific labels in this sense, by the utmost respect for the natural balance of the agro-ecosystem and the achievement of the greatest possible sustainability.


The various oenological operations take place in Roberto Cipresso's cellar/laboratory on the outskirts of Montalcino, where the availability of large work spaces and cutting-edge equipment is combined with the attention to detail and attention typical of craftsmanship. 

The cellar practices, as well as the agronomic interventions, are extremely flexible according to the variability of the different climatic years and the state of the grapes harvested each year, with the aim of obtaining wines that are the most faithful reflection possible of the terroir of origin , the personality of their author, and the enchanting landscape to which they belong.
