Wine maker notes
Martino del Nero is made at Fattoria Resta, a few kilometres outside Buonconvento. The name of the wine comes from an engraving on a stone column in the sixteenth-century wine cellar. The vines in the 6500 square metre vineyard are grown by the winemaker under the supervision of oenologist Paolo Caciorgna. The estate also owns 2 ha of vineyards planted in the Rosso di Montalcino DOC area.

In the year 1573, the master builder Martino del Nero engraved his name on a stone column in the wine cellar of the monastery he was building. This is now my home and my winery, in Buonconvento, the gateway to the Orcia Valley, with views of Montalcino. I fell in love with Martino del Nero, and I named my wine after him. My wine is a little jewel, produced in very small quantities but with a lot of passion. Passion requires strict discipline, and the selection criteria in the vineyard are very severe. Guaranteeing that the result will be top quality, however small the quantity. Everything is done by hand, from summer and winter pruning to harvesting. My wine is profoundly linked to the place where it is made and to the people who make it. It preserves the properties of the Sangiovese grape, with its strong character and rich, embracing structure. The vineyard extends over 6500 square metres, and receives our loving care under the guidance of experienced oenologist Paolo Caciorgna. Precisely because my vineyard is so small, I am intimately acquainted with every row, every plant, every vine, and I feel privileged to make a wine that will be drunk all over the world, in a few carefully selected glasses. It is a noble wine made from Sangiovese grapes: Martino del Nero.
