Cantina Chiacchiera | Estate winery in the highly regarded Cervognano zone of the Montepulciano region of Tuscany. It was founded in 2010 by Emanuela Mancianti and her family when the family stopped selling their grapes and started making their own wines, initially selling in bulk. The name of the winery ‘Chiacchiera’ is the Italian term for chatterbox, the nickname for Emanuela’s talkative father Mario. The main wines are Rosso di Montepulciano DOC, and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG. There is a tasting room in the winery for visitors.
