In a way the Tuscan Vineyard resembles a stage for successful women and men who have everything and who are maybe on the lookout for new emotions such as having their name on the label of a small wine treasure. Famous people with exceptional abilities who have availabilities of great capitals and great contacts. People who can increase the prestige and the myth of Tuscan wines as if the vineyard were the red carpet at the Oscars.
Tuscany has plenty but Montalcino is really full of super VIPS.
Starting from Brunello and the most recent arrivals: the newest is Soleya International Corporation from Panama although there is no face behind this society at the moment.
Andrè Santos Esteves, 45 years old, banker from Brazil, 329th richest man in the world and 14th in Brazil according to the Forbes list. He adores great wines and has seen in the splendid Argiano estate in Montalcino a type of Italian chateaux.
Alejandro Bulgheroni richest man in Argentina according to Forbes, his business is in gas and petrol but he spends lots of time in Italy where his wife lives.

Q. Avvocato Ferrante “Is small still beautiful?

A. “I am convinced that small is always better, but the time has come to reinvent ourselves. The Italian economic fabric has always been made up of mostly medium and small companies; most of these were in fact family run. The US is one of the largest “friendly” nations for business men, as proven by the  World Bank statistics.
