This 119.9-hectare winery is situated in the hills of Volterra, in a location of exceptional natural beauty and enjoying unparalleled privacy and tranquility. Constructed between 2013 and 2019, this cutting-edge, state-of-the-art wine cellar is a true architectural masterpiece, organized according to eco-sustainable principles that are also reflected in the sublime quality of the wines. The winery currently produces approximately 60,000 bottles of wine per year, with plans to reach 130,000 bottles per year. The vineyard area exceeds 23.5 hectares.

The property represents the culmination of a long-held aspiration and the culmination of years of dedicated work and commitment to create an activity that is in complete harmony with nature. This is achieved through the harnessing of geothermalenergy, which minimizes the impact on the environment and results in the creation of what is, in essence, the winery of the future.

The entrance to the property, which is closed by a gate that is easily recognizable, is located right along the road that connects San Gimignano and Volterra. The route to the property winds through the estate's fields and vineyards, passing beneath Mauro Staccioli’s monumental work, symbolically titled First Steps, which is situated at the entrance to the estate. From the gate, it appears as though the farm's internal road passes inside the sculpture's circle.



The estate covers an area of approximately 119.9 hectares (296.3 acres). The estate is primarily dedicated to viticulture, encompassing 23.5 hectares of vineyards and a 3.0-hectare olive grove that is currently not fully productive. Additionally, the estate boasts extensive areas of arable land, which could be utilized for the planting of new vines, amounting to approximately 50 hectares. The remaining area is occupied by woods (25.7 ha) that include a ground for white truffles (Tuber magnatum). It is noteworthy that the estate’s vineyards are entirely fenced and protected from wild animals.

A private lake with a capacity of 27,000 cu.m is situated on the grounds, allowing the gardens and fields to be irrigated without the necessity of relying on private wells or the municipal water supply. This ensures self-sufficiency in this regard.

In front of the winery, just across the road, an ENAC-authorized helipad has also been constructed, allowing guests to reach the property conveniently from the air.



The farm is situated on a hillside at an altitude of approximately 430 m asl, with the coast of Tuscany visible in the distance. The vines are continuously refreshed by the sea breeze, which maintains their strength and vitality, enabling the production of high-quality wines. Moreover, the location of the winery is of interest, situated midway between the Bolgheri and Chianti areas. This ensures an average summer temperature of approximately 5°C lower than that of Chianti. Prior to planting the vines, careful zoning was conducted, including chemical and physical analysis of the soils. This enabled the planting of each variety in the optimal spot, allowing the grapes to express their characteristics to the fullest. The estate's soil is clayish and rich in skeleton and marine fossils, with intrusions of alabaster. This white limestone material is also used by local sculptors to create beautiful sculptures.

The winery is managed by a fully independent team of experts and passionate individuals, led by agronomist Michele Senesi and viticulturist Stefano Dini. These individuals have brought incredible innovations in Monterosola together with their innate passion for winemaking. All wine production methods are also closely followed and supervised by oenologist Giacomo Cesare, a long-time business partner of the world-class oenologist Alberto Antonini (Frescobaldi e Antinori). Sustainable agriculture and organic wine-making are at the core of Monterosola’s philosophy.

The area of Volterra, located between the Valdicecina and Valdera, has an ancient agricultural tradition that has its roots in the Etruscan period: the city was in fact one of the largest of the Etruscan Dodecapolis and was already known at the time for the wines and oils produced in the area, blessed by a climate mitigated by the nearby sea.



The entrance to the property, closed by a recognizable gate, is located right along the road that connects San Gimignano and Volterra. The road to the property winds through the estate's fields and vineyards and passes right under Mauro Staccioli's monumental work, symbolically titled First Steps and placed right at the entrance to the estate. From the gate, it almost seems as if the farm's internal road passes inside the sculpture's circle.
