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.

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. Maybe for this reason he has bought Dievole in Chianti Classico, Poggio Landi (just in front of my Casato Prime Donne) and Podere Brizio in Montalcino adding it to his vineyards in Mendoza in Argentina, Garzòn in Uruguay, California … Read more…

Montalcino - old picture

During the past few days and during a recent mission to the USA with the Consorzio del Chianti Classico and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, the producers of Brunello and mostly I have been often solicited so that the previews of the Tuscan red wines became a large event to be organized in the Stazione Leopolda in Florence.
