The Producer

Located between Pienza and Montepulciano on the Strada del Chianti (dei Colli Senesi), Tenuta Santo Pietro’s 72-acre estate was part of a larger farm system laid out by Pope Pius II in the mid-1400s. Today it is a self-sufficient gentleman’s farm with twelve acres of vineyards and twelve acres of olive trees. We purchased the property in 2006 and undertook extensive renovations of the villa and the vineyards.

Our vineyards now include 12 acres of old and new growth vines of Sangiovese, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah grapes. We produce approximately 1,800 cases of wine per year. We pride ourselves on the small production of the highest quality wine we can make on-site in our newly completed winery.

We currently produce six wines from our vineyards: Pio II, a lively, classic Chianti DOCG (WS 87), Viper, a richly-blended Super Tuscan (WS 88), Perceptum, and IGT of international varietals (WS 89), Letizia, a light, crisp rose made of 100% Sangiovese and 23.10, a special vintner’s blend.  All our wines go well with just about everything there is to eat in this area – cheeses, meats, pastas, and vegetables.
