  • The estate is located to the south of Panzano, that glorious village in the "Conca d'Oro" valley that is haven - and heaven - for so many cool climate Chiantis and Super Tuscans. The estate, S. Lucia in Faulle, has been owned by the Di Napoli Rampolla family since 1739, but the first wines weren't produced until the 1970s. Today, Maurizia, and her brother Luca Di Napoli Rampolla manage the property with the expert guidance of agronomist and winemaker, Giacomo Tachis.

    The family practices a thorough biodynamic regimen (including the bulls' horns!) and follows the lunar cycles prescribed therein. The calcare and pyrite-laden soils are a key ingredient in what the terroir imparts to these exquisite wines. Manual harvesting, hand selection of the grapes, and primary (alcoholic) and secondary (malolactic) fermentation in barriques completes the transformation from mere grape juice into wines of tremendous proportions.
