La Palazzetta Tuscany
About La Palazzetta
La Palazzetta is a small, family-run winery, with 18 hectares of vineyards that are situated on the south-eastern edge of Montalcino in the tiny village of Castelnuovo dell’Abate.
Cultivating his vineyards organically (certified since 2016), Flavio Fanti is a traditionalist who somewhat straddles the fence. While only utilizing large Slovenian and French oak for his Brunello, he chooses to use various size barrique for his rosso in order to create a wine that is characteristic of Sangiovese Grosso, but incredibly approachable upon release.
Beginning with fruit that is ripe and mature Flavio makes Brunello wines that are big in structure, powerful and pure. Staying true to Tuscany, he favors Sangiovese while avoiding international varieties. Today, his children Luca and Tea continue the story that for generations honors the respect and the love for the land.
