More about today’s guests

Elisabetta Fagiuoli has a spirituality about her that is present in her wines. She is the owner of Montenidoli in the San Gimignano region of Chianti, Tuscany. Montenidoli means "the mountain of the little nests" and it is comprised of 26 hectares of vineyards surrounded by 200 hectares of woodlands.

The property which she owned with her late companion Sergio was brought under vine in 1965, and at the time was abandoned wilderness. Located on the top of hills, the farm is remote and has spectacular vistas of the Chianti hillsides. There is a profound respect of the vineyard and the land which is clearly present in the winemaking at Montenidoli. (Credit Grape Collective)

Alessio Cecchini is a young, florentine-based winemaker. Working beside Elisabetta since 2019.

He’s been traveling all over the world, making wines in New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Burgundy and Montalcino before settling at Montenidoli. His studies were focused on concrete fermentations of Sangiovese and biodynamic farming.

Today he supervises the winemaking process and travels the world as an ambassador for Montenidoli.
