Podere Giocoli

Marco Cannoni and Frederico Renezi – Podere Giocoli, Terranova Bracciolini

Marco started early, only 12 years old he was already the one driving the tractor for his grandfather. By that time they didn’t bottle their own wine, they drank a part of it and sold the rest in bulk.

Since 1998 he is doing this full time and have been bottling all wines under his own label ever since. He tends 7 hectares of vines spread out on 7 parcels around the estate, which is located on the foot of the Prato Magno hill. These vineyards has fortunately never seen any chemicals and are full of life.

Since 5 years, Marco also has a helping hand and partner in crime, Frederico, who has spent his whole adult life as a consultant winemaker at various estates in the region.

This wines feels like wines from the region should feel, according to us. Great aromatics, lush red fruit and that unmistakable Italian structure.
