Founded in 1882, family-run Tenute Piccini shares an evolution and progression that very much mirrors the growth of Tuscany. The region was launched onto the international stage thanks to its Chianti in hay-wrapped bottles that was served at Italian restaurants around the world. With more than 126 years of history, Piccini has been a leader of change and innovation in Tuscany. Today, Tenute Piccini has four
separate estates and is one of the most recognized brands of Tuscan wine in the world. The flagship wine is Piccini Chianti, which boasts a distinctively orange label.
Piccini is solely responsible for more than 10 percent of the entire production of Italy’s Chianti.
Angiolo Piccini founded the company with his wife Maria Teresa Totti more than a century ago with the purchase of 20 acres in Poggibonsi. Mario, took over in 1925 and steered the company through the difficult years of the Great Depression and WWII. When Mario Piccini died in 1963, the company had grown to approximately 400 acres and was well established internationally. Pierangelo Piccini and his wife Marcella Sanmicheli (the current President of the Piccini Group) brought dynamic change to the company. They enlarged the group’s portfolio and established competitive prices for value wines.
Memoro truly emerged as a cuvee wine, a blend of not only different grapes of different orgins in Italy, but also of different vintages: the 12 months oaked casked Montepulciano from Abruzzo, the solar Nero d'Avola from Sicily, the colder climate (Veneto) Merlot and the passito Primitivo wine from Puglia.
