Our family’s long-cherished wish was fulfilled when the wine estate Poggio Nibbiale was founded in 1998. The dream to grow wine amidst the impressive scenery of southern Tuscany became reality.
In the following years we started cultivating 11 hectare of land, established a modern winery and restored the medieval cellar from the 13th century below the church of San Giovanni Battista in Scansano. The estate’s major part is however governed by nature, the Mediterranean macchia with its almost impenetrable vegetation, old cork oaks, genista in full bloom and wild olive trees.
Our vineyards are located in the hills of the Maremma between Scansano and Magliano in Toscana, 300 meters above the Tyrrhenian Sea with a magnificent view of the islands of Giglio, Elba, Montecristo and the Monte Argentario peninsula. Right from the start, we decided for organic viniculture and refrained from farming practices that aim primarily at a high yield. It is important for us to endow our wines with aromatic depth, refinement and complexity.
Based on a deep understanding of the agricultural traditions of Tuscany and ecological knowledge, the estate’s enologist, Dr. Massimo Albanese, creates multi-layered wines abounding in elegance and regional authenticity.
Our family’s philosophy of winemaking is simple: No show but quality, no vogues but sustainability and most importantly: passion, dedication and a true appreciation for our land and its natural riches.
