In 1999, Silvio Massena returned from New York to embark on a new career. Accompanied by his wife Catalina and his son, he took over the family farm south of Florence in the Chianti Classico appellation. The property spans 49 hectares, 11.5 of which are planted with mostly Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorino, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot vines. Biodynamic agriculture is practised and the wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts. Some wines are even aged in amphorae.
