Winemaker Notes

The harvest happens in the late September, after that the grapes are naturally fermented on their skins in stainless steel tank. The wine is then aged for 6 months in French oak barrel. It's bottled and ages another six months in the bottle.


The Story

I first met Roberto Bechi virtually during Covid through the once popular app Clubhouse.  Every time he spoke, I tuned into what he was saying as he was a wealth of knowledge about Siena, his property, and the Italian culture.  Once we could finally travel again, we jumped on the opportunity and I highly recommend you visit him if you have the chance to do one of his tours.

It's horrible to say but being that he made Chianti, I had little expectations, as Chianti is one of the most overproduced wines of Italy, and we've only ever really carried a handful of Chianti at Rimessa.  We were shocked at the elegance and refreshing nature of his.  A great reminder not to throw the baby out with the bathwater.  Now I'm just super disappointed that we didn't get a chance to taste his EVOO as well.  

Madonna Bella's farm is managed by 6 friends who share a passion for Tuscany and its products. The cella ris surrounded by olive trees, planted grape vines and fields of wheat. Francesco Bechi has run Madonnabella farm for over twenty years, producing grapes and olives in an ideal climate.

Now Paolo, Roberto, Marco, Andrea and yet another Roberto are excited to have joined Francesco. Today, Madonnabella farm turns the grapes into fine local wines and presses its own extra virgin olive oil right on the premises, ensuring freshness and authenticity.
