About the producer

One of the best kept secrets in Montalcino lies in the small estate of San Lorenzo, a stone’s throw away from the famous estate of Soldera in the south-western area of Prata. In this picturesque setting, 5th generation farmer Luciano Ciolfi tends to his vineyards sprawled across a modest 5 hectares of land. Embracing the timeless wisdom passed down from his father and grandfathers, Luciano remains steadfast on the path of family tradition. His dedication shines through in the creation of pure wines that eloquently echo the terroir and essence of each vintage. Amidst the backdrop of shifting climates and temperatures in recent decades, locals herald this area as the future of the region. Situated 150 meters higher than Montosoli, the wines from Prata boast remarkable acidity and an inherent elegance and freshnes.
