Tenuta L'Illuminata was an idea of Guido Folonari, heir to one of the most historical Italian wine families, who decided to develop, in 2001 an ambitious wine project. In a short time, he found three wineries in the most prestigious production areas between Piedmont and Tuscany, which emerged in the Italian wine scenario and were immediately recognized as “the three Killer B’s” by Guido Folonari.
Tenuta L’Illuminata is the first of the three wine estates of Guido Folonari, heir to a historic Italian wine family. Located on the beautiful hills of La Morra in the Langhe hills, Tenuta L’Illuminata has a total area of approximately 11 hectares. Thanks to the privileged vineyards, located at an altitude of 250 meters above sea level, and the passion and professionalism of the team, the resulting wines boast greatest elegance, authenticity and drinking pleasantness.
The wine derives its fantasy name from the Savincati, a Celtic people that inhabited the Piemonte region around the first century B.C.
