La Fornace is a small family run estate whose origins are mingled with peasant farming history.
La Fornace is situated in the hart of Montalcino hill, the estate altitude is 400 m above sea-level. The name of the estate comes from an old Furnace built in 1490: many years ago the original building included an oven to fire bricks. The oven was on the other side of the house where the well is now.
The grounds are exposed to northeast and they have a geologic beach sandy composition with small clay quantity.
The position, the grounds and the altitude make our wines particularly delicates and elegants.
At the beginning of 20th century Montalcino countryside was cultivated with vineyards and olive groves, and already the parents of my grandparents worked in La Fornace as sharecroppers.
