Über das Weingut und die Weine
Begnardi winery was founded in 1974 when Roberto Begnardi, a native of northern Italy, decided to settle in Tuscany. He bought a farmhouse and some land on which he planted his first hectare of grape vines, establishing the vineyard.
Originally the company dealt with various types of agriculture including animal husbandry and cereal crops, as well as, of course, the production of wine. The wine was produced with rudimentary methodology, without pretense and with the main purpose of satisfying friends, relatives and personal needs.
In 2000, two of Roberto's four children joined the company: Michele and Luca who, from an early age, had constantly been contributing to the good running of the company.
They therefore decided, together with their father, to focus exclusively on the wine sector, which was already their great passion, allowing them to develop it to the fullest.
It was in this year that new vineyards were planted and work began on the construction of a larger cellar. This gave us the opportunity to produce more wine with a higher quality standard using the new equipment we purchased at the same time.
From here the quality of the product become the focal point of the company, from which everything then developed.
The resources invested, both economic and labor, began to be dedicated exclusively towards the production of excellent quality grapes, essential for a fine wine, when combined with fastidious care of the vineyards.
Over the years, the company landholdings have gradually increased, currently 12 hectares of vineyard are entirely managed with the aim of producing quality grapes. We are now assisted in our endeavour by Alessandro, Michele's son, who shares the family passion, and joined the company in 2016.
In 2018, the fascinating and long-desired plan to be certified as an organic company also began; the certification was finally obtained in 2021, an extra step in continuing to develop the winery under the sign of quality.
For over 20 years, the constants of Begnardi winery have been family and quality in what we produce. A medium sized family-run winery, we annually produce wines appreciated by enthusiasts and beginners alike.
90% of our grapes are Sangiovese, the most caratteristic variety in Tuscany and in Maremma where we are. This Sangiovese allow us to produce different wines.
First of all we have the "Pigna Rossa", a DOCG Montecucco Sangiovese Reserve, 100% Sangiovese that have to rest 24 months in Oak barrels and 6 months in bottles.
Than we go to the most iconic wine of our winery, the "Ceneo", a DOC Montecucco Rosso, 100% Sangiovese that made 10 month in steel. This is the wine, the wine who the teaster can feel the terroir and the winery infuence because it's Sangiovese (so the tipical grapes) and it doesn't have any change made by oak or similar aging.
We have even two blend made with Sangiovese, a DOC Montecucco Rosso "Begnardi", 80% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and an IGT TOscana Rosè "Rosa al Monte" made with 80% Sangiovese and 20% Pugnitello, a really local grape that we usually find only in Maremma.
Of course it can't miss a special white, "Hastalis" DOC Montecucco Vermentino, a 100% Vermentino with a full body, perfect for a good fish dinner or white meets.
At the end a beautifull experiment, "Buio" IGT Toscana Rosso, a 100% Teroldego, a typical grape of nothen Italy that, cultivate here in Maremma and let it aging two years in Tonneaux, give to the wine a total different sensation compare to the usual northen Teroldego, definitely a must to try.
