FATTORIA SVETONI, estate in the Montepulciano region of Tuscany. It was founded in the early 19th-century as a ‘Leopoldina’, an ‘ideal farmhouse’ commissioned by Pietro Leopoldo, Grand Duke of Tuscany. It was built from the late 1700s until the mid-1800s. It has been producing wine since 1865. The main wines are Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG, Rosso di Montepulciano DOC, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOC, and Vin Santo di Montepulciano DOC.
Owner | Soc. Agr. Podere Rubino S.r.l., a consortium of three local families called Rossi (farmers), Omar Pellegrini (tyres) and Prencipe (agriculture). They bought it from Tenute Folonari (Ambrogio Folonari and his son Giovanni). Originally it was part of the Gracciano della Seta estate, but when this was divided, this part (without the house) went to Piera Mazzucchelli’s brother, and he later sold to Folonari.
Staff | Vineyards: Roberto da Frassini (Oen. and Agr.)
