It was 1979 when Roccaldo Acuti, a textile entrepreneur from Prato, bought a small plot in Montefili on the northern slope of the Conca d'Oro di Panzano. With passion and constancy, first he and then his daughter Maria and son-in-law Tommaso Paglione, Piedmontese winemaker, have dedicated themselves to the enhancement of this territory and its expressions in the bottle. In 2016, the Acuti family decided to sell to three American entrepreneurs, Tomas Peck, Frank Bynum and Nicola Marzovilla, who decided to operate under the sign of continuity. In fact, the company is located inside the Conca d'Oro amphitheater, so named for its fertility that made it golden when wheat was grown here, and that with the resolution of the Municipality of Greve in Chianti in 2012 became one of the first biodistretti of Italy. Biological conduction therefore for the ten hectares of vineyard that insist, at 500 meters above sea level, on the typical clayey and rich skeleton lands with Galestro and Alberese. Spurred cordon plants, which become inverted for over forty years, which give life to the amphitheater, the company's flagship wine. Sangiovese obviously master of the vineyard with remnants of earth left to the Cabernet Sauvignon as the only support and as raw material of the Bruno di Rocca that, with the 2012 vintage, is prolonging the maturation, thus skipping the tasting for this year. In the cellar Tommaso Puglione has been replaced by Serena Gusmeri, who is continuing the long maturation between large barrels and 350-liter Tronçais, which have always been accustomed to the company's wines.
