Tenimenti Andreucci is located right in the heart of Tuscany. With the world renowned vineyards of Chianti to the north, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano to the east and the artful Brunello di Montalcino to the west, it also puts our vineyard in the heart of the Tuscan wine country. Our vineyards are blessed with excellent sun exposure and proper ventilation. This climate along with our special cultivation techniques, careful selection of grapes, and the timing and proper handling of our harvest allows us to produce truly exceptional wines.
The Andreucci family has been making wine for the past three centuries. In 1810 the quartermasters corps of the French Army purchased wine from one of our ancestors for Napoleon’s troops while they were in Italy. A reproduction of the receipt issued by the French Army is shown on the label of our bottles. Even back then we were making exceptional wines. After all, if Napoleon would buy it, it must have been good!
Flavio Andreucci, the vintner and vineyard owner, also studied geology. He uses his geology training to analyze the varying soils that characterize their vineyard to help him select different varieties of vines as he matches the right grape with the right soil. With a long family tradition of wine making combined with some of today’s modern technology Flavio takes great pride in producing superior wines.
The Andreucci family has been making wine in Tuscany since 1794. They have over the centuries developed good relationships with other vintners in the area. Flavio continues this tradition with many of the area vintners today, some of whom are the best Brunello producers, to discuss new ideas and trade insights on up and coming techniques for improving the quality of wines.
