The story of a family devoted to the culture of a land
The company was founded in the early 70’s when the Giannelli family decided to redevelop their small farm which has gradually grown through acquisitions since then. Today the company includes various farms and has extended its territory to 120 hectares of which 50 are vineyards and 15 olive- groves. We produce Chianti, Chianti Colli Fiorentini, Toscano Rosso and Bianco, Vin Santo del Chianti, Laudemio, Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montalcino, Sant’Antimo, Maremma Toscana Sangiovese and Vermentino Montecucco.
Tradition and authenticity
In the early 70’s when farmers left the countryside for the town, the Giannelli family, instead, decided to redevelop their small farm “I Mori” which has gradually developed since then.
This particular area, surrounding the old castle of Malmantile, has always been famous for its wonderful olive-oil. The company’s 2000 olive trees produce an extra virgin olive oil which is sold under the prestigious brand of Laudemio.
Year after year the vineyards have being renewed with an accurate selection of the new vines. In 2001 was built a cellar for wine production, ageing and packaging. This cellar can also offer wine-tastings to the visitors.
In 1997 the Giannelli family bought a new company, the Podere Canneta, situated in Montalcino, which produces Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montalcino and Sant’Antimo wines. Canneta is 1000 meters far away from the old fortress of Montalcino: it is composed by 9 hectares of vineyards and 2 hectares of olive groves and surrounded by 30 hectares of thick forest.
Here, in addition to the enlargement of the vineyards, in 2003 has been added a new cellar for the wine production, packaging, storage and wine-tasting.
In 2003 the Giannelli family expanded their agricultural industry also in Maremma, in Cinigiano: a region famous for its vineyards. Between 2004 and 2005 these vineyards were used for the production of the DOC Montecucco Vermentino and Maremma Toscana Sangiovese.
In 2004 the company bought and renovated a cellar for the wine-production, ageing, packaging and storage. From here we developed the wines of our brand “La Pietrosola”.
Since 2015 all wineries merged into the Società Agricola CANNETA Srl, though mantaining the original brands and keeping to produce in full respect of the Tuscan tradition.
