The idea of having an estate of their own was born from the desire to give shape, with their work, to something that would represent them earnestly. The intent was to find a place where to establish a small farm with a great vision: produce an “authentic wine”, resulting from the bond between man’s work and the territory.
Campinuovi was born: 25 hectares on the hills at the feet of Monte Amiata, 20 km south of Montalcino. The estate faces the wide Maremma plains, and at the moment cultivates 9.5 ha as a vineyard with Sangiovese and about 10% of the vine population covered by other black grapes such as Colorino, Pugnitello, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and an ancient white variety, Ansonica.
Back in Tuscany from his Piemontese experience, Daniele meets the man he considers is Maestro: Giulio Gambelli. Together they work in Montalcino, at Case Basse, Gianfranco Soldera’s estate, and in Mercatale Valdarno at Fattoria Petrolo, owned by the Sanjust family. Daniele learns with Gambelli that the wine is born in the vineyard, from soil, sun, rain and wind. He also learns how to care for each plant so that, in the most natural way, it gives its best, the best grapes. In Campinuovi Daniele’s dream comes true: making wine in the manner he learned from Giulio.
