Pilot turned winemaker......

Diego Molinari, Cerbaiona's founder, retired from a career as an Alitalia commercial pilot at the age of 46. He and his wife, Nora, began looking at vineyards in 1977 with the dream of pursuing a life as winemakers. They came across the Cerbaiona estate and were immediately intriguied by its ancient farmhouse, Renaissance-era garden and private chapel. Cerbaiona is situated in the middle region of the Montalcino appellation, representing the balance between southern Montalcino's ripe fruit characteristics and the north's fresher, more-structured reds. 

Today the estate of comprised of a mere 6 acres of vines, along with olive groves and forest. 

The Vino Rosso is for every day. This is a blend of Sangiovese vintages (2007, 2008, 2013) with smaller portions of old vine Merlot.
