Tuscany is the land of some of the most cellar worthy, collectible wines in the world. From the coastal town of Bolgheri, home to the greats like Sassicaia and Ornellaia, to the age worthy and haunting hillside wines of Chianti, home to Felsina and Ricasoli, to the hilltop mecca of Montalcino. Tucked away, at the southernmost border, right at the edge of the woods that lead to Brunello, sits Italy’s young rising star with a last name that is synonymous with greatness: Bulgari.
The Bulgari Family is known for decadence, one of the leading jewelry and luxury goods companies in the world. Next in line to take over the family business is the young and charismatic Giovanni Bulgari. Giovanni is a man who has immense passion for wine and a relentless entrepreneurial spirit, but instead of following in his family’s footsteps, he forged his own path, pursuing his love for wine and viticulture. He and his father purchased an abandoned 64-acre vineyard in the remote foothills of Sienna, revitalized the vineyard and built a state of the art environmentally friendly winery, which runs on geothermal heating and cooling system that brings the winery’s carbon footprint close to zero. Architecturally, is one of the most beautiful modern wineries I have ever seen, floor to ceiling glass windows with the Tuscan landscape in a full 360 degree view (right). It belongs on the list with properties like Rocca di Frassinello in Chianti, Opus One in Napa, and Chateau Cheval Blanc in Bordeaux.
