Our Winemaker: Serena Gusmeri
Mastering the Terrior
Bringing Serena to Montefili
A Perfect Fit
Serena Gusmeri joined Montefili in the autumn of 2015. A young, intuitive winemaker with a profound sensitivity to the interpretation of old vines and the ambition to project Montefili into the future. Sharing Nicola, Frank and Tom’s belief that the role of a great winemaker is simply to shepherd nature, her critically acclaimed first vintage marked Montefili’s ascent – a phoenix rising in Chianti Classico.
“The first time Serena and I walked through the vines and across the fields, we talked about how special Montefili was, and how we both wanted the earth to guide the wines we made. That afternoon, I knew she was exactly who we wanted.”
–Frank Bynum, Co-Founder
