Further Details

Master taster Giulio Gambelli and Paolo Brini Batacchi, owner of Tenuta Ormanni and an expert on Merlot, Sangiovese and Syrah, have created a Super Tuscan that further enriches the estate's already formidable array of premium wines. Step by step, Maestro Gambelli has personally assessed the soils and identified the zones where grapes should be collected and selected, overseeing vinification and the choice of barrels. His dedication and commitment have been rewarded by the creation of Julius, a name that Brini Batacchi family adopted in honour of its expert taster. The judicious combination of hand-picked Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah combined with eight to ten months' aging in barriques yields an exceptional vino da tavola. The Ormanni estate is located in Tuscany, between Poggibonsi and Casstellina in Chianti. Founded by the Ormanni family in 13th century, it has been owned by the Brini family since 1818. The Chianti Classico is produced from Sangiovese 90% and Canaiolo 10% estate grown grapes.It ages for 12 months in oak barrels and casks.

The 13th Century Ormanni estate is located right in the heart of Chianti, between the towns of Poggibonsi and Castellina. Proof of the incredible heritage of this Tuscan property can be found in Dante Alighieri’s 'Divina Commedia', where the Ormanni family is mentioned.

For the last 200 years the estate has been owned by the Brini Batecchi family, and it is Paolo Brini Batecchi together with his daughter Paola who run the winery today.

The farm covers an area of 242 ha of land, 68 of which are vineyards dedicated principally to the cultivation of Sangiovese. They also have two beautiful agriturismo resorts, Podere La Querce and Podere Montignano.
