Sergio lo Jacono – Torre alle Tolfe, Sienna

 

Sergio was early to work organically, already in 1979 he converted his first domaine. He has kept on doing that ever since and for 13 years he has been in charge of the wines and olive oil at Torre alle Tolfe.


This beautiful, old estate is located just outside beautiful Sienna and has 100 hectare of land, 8 hectares with vines and 16 hectares of olive trees surrounded by forest. Sergio is also planting another 4 hectares right now, that will be in production within 5 years.
