Podere Bellarina is located in Loc. La Bellarina in Castelnuovo dell’Abate in the south-east of the Montalcino region. In 1992 it was purchased in 1992 by Tenute Niccolai who sold the wine under the ‘Palagetto’ brand. In 2014 Bellarina was sold to the owners of Collemassari (in the neighbouring Montecucco region) who already owned the Montalcino estate Poggio di Sotto, Bellarina’s neighbour. Bellarina’s 3 hectares (7.41 acres) of vines were incorporated into those of Tenuta San Giorgio which is also belongs to the owners of Collemassari.
