Tuscany. Close your eyes and whisper it under your breath.
The Renzo Marinai estate, called San Martino a Cecione, takes its name from the nearby ancient church of San Martino.These farms and vineyards are snuggled in the Conca d'Oro near the charming village of Panzano, covering over 33ha, only 13 given to grapes Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon alongside a range of native varieties.
Renzo Marinai himself took on the estate in 1996 and with the support of oenologist Giovanni Cappelli, completely reorganized its operations, converting it to an entirely organic farm. Decades later, Renzo decided to partner with Tom Heidman - a Dutchman with a passion for wine and for Italy. Together with the help of Janmario Hero Reina, the name Renzo Marinai continues to be a byword for great quality wine.
Throughout the cellars Mozart is gently played, creating brilliant ruby red Chianti’s, deep Riserva’s, and bold Cabernet all beautifully structured with elegant weight.
With every day that passes in this idyllic hideaway, as the vines grow older and the people learn the particular character of the soils, the Renzo Marinai wines have gone from strength to strength and now stand among Tuscany’s greatest.
