AGRICOLA I FABBRI - Tuscany, Italy
The Grassi family has been growing grapes and producing olive oil on this same plot of land on the beautiful hills of Lamole in Chianti Classico since the 17th century. Generation after generation of experience and work have brought these vineyards to the heights of excellence in wine and oil production. Sisters Susanna and Maddalena took over the running of the estates in 2000, creating Agricola i Fabbri, named for the blackmith's forge in the village with overlooks the vineyards, and for the second occupation of many generations of the Grassi family, after farming.
The sisters have spent the past decade developing sustainable farming practices and attained organic certification in 2010. With the Agricola I Fabbri Susanna and Maddalena seek to produce superb quality red wines from their 9 hectares of specialized DOCG vineyards. Elegant, delicate wines that represent perfectly the unique characteristics of the territory of Lamole.
