All production operations are performed manually, especially the harvesting, which is a very important phase to ensure the quality of the future wine. During the harvest, the grapes are selected according to their quality. First, we harvest Canaiolo Nero, and second, the Sangiovese. Fermentation takes place in cement vats with a temperature ranging between 28°C-30°C/82°F-86°F, followed by aging in steel for 6-months and then in the bottle for at least 3-months.

DEDICATION
Berger, a beautiful black sheepdog from Bergamo, was gifted to Pietro upon his Istituto Agrario completion in 2014. His simple, calm, and gentle demeanor brought our family so much joy. Nottolo della Marronaia is not only dedicated to our dear Berger but also our beloved Dino and all Bergamasco Sheepdogs

    Wine is superb! Was there for a lunch wine tasting in November 2017. A must if you go to SanGimignano. You will not be disappointed. A family owned business with a heart with what they love to do.

    The Nottolo is wonderful. Our family lunch at the winery was delicious and fun and the views of the hills were gorgeous.
