About Us

Our History and Vision

A Sanctuary of Sangiovese

Nestled in the heart of Chianti Classico, Montefili is where the whispers of the land and the touch of sun breathe life into each bottle.

The Future from the Past

Ancient Montefili

Situated strategically between valleys, the Etruscans first settled in the area and later the Romans, built a military settlement and named it Montefili.

Medieval Montefili

By 986 AD, the area was controlled by the Benedictine monks of Badia a Passignano, who cultivated the land until it was destroyed in 1260.

Super Tuscans Era

In the 1970s, the Acuti family planted vineyards, marking the beginning of Vecchie Terre di Montefili as we know it today. They embraced the innovation of the Super Tuscans movement, leading to the creation of unique Tuscan wines

Organic District

In 2000, Montefili became part of Italy’s first organic district, promoting sustainable viticulture.

A New Era

In 2015, American investors Nicola Marzovilla, Frank Bynum, and Tom Peck Jr. acquired Montefili, bringing a vision of preserving its sanctity while innovating for the future. With winemaker Serena Gusmeri, they have received worldwide acclaim.

The Future

The mission is continuous improvement, maintaining openness and a willingness to evolve. Montefili’s legacy is one of deep roots and future growth, a place to be cherished by generations to come.
Philosophy & Ethos

Our Land Is Precious

Montefili embodies a philosophy of respect for nature, tradition, and the craft of winemaking. Our ethos revolves around creating wines that are a true expression of our unique terroir.
