The Dei family, owners of the estate, have been winegrowers in the area of Montepulciano
for several decades. Their entrepreneurial spirit has its roots in the travertine marble industry around Siena. Through tradition and innovation, Cantine Dei reinterprets the history of Tuscan wine to make contemporary wines that are truly unique. The first experimental bottles of Vino Nobile 1985 were released 1988. The success of this vintage was the starting point for the estate’s expansion. In 1989, a vinification cellar including up-to-date winemaking equipment was completed. Since 1999, from the Sangiovese grapes harvested in the Bossona vineyard, the estate has been producing its Vino Nobile Riserva. Keeping very low yields per hectare has always been the main objective of the estate, whose primary goal is the achievement of a Vino Nobile at its highest quality, enhancing the characteristics of its indigenous grape variety.
