Description

At Casato Prime Donne there are 16 hectares of Brunello vineyard. Within the cellars, barrels and tonneau lie beneath frescoes showing the history of Montalcino. The winemakers are all female, a revolutionary work situation for Italy. Even the consultant wine maker is a lady, Valérie Lavigne, from the University of Bordeaux. With the 2009 harvest, the Tinaia del Vento vinification area was inaugurated, designed to vinify Brunello with lovcal native yeasts and to put technology to good use in order to recreate condition similar to those of yesteryear. In the vineyards around Casatto there is a trail path with resting spots embellished with works of art.
