Since 1979, the Rossini family has presided over the estate, a legacy initiated by Mr. Bruno Rossini, a Veneto native who, in addition to cultivating vines and olives, seamlessly integrated apple and pear tree cultivation. With the guidance of esteemed experts, Mr. Bruno cultivated a profound understanding of the soil and its nuances, evolving from a grape seller to a passionate producer.

In 1995, the journey of 'Podere la Cappella' took a pivotal turn as it ventured into winemaking, introducing the distinguished labels 'Chianti Classico' and 'Corbezzolo'. The year 1996 marked the birth of 'Cantico', accompanied by the invaluable contributions of Miss Natascia, daughter of Mr. Bruno Rossini.

Embracing strictly organic methods, the estate passionately tends to all its products. Within the estate's park, the quaint church of "S. Maria a Cerbaia," dating back to 1043, awaits exploration. Adorned with precious artistic treasures, including a 13th-century Madonna with the infant Jesus and earthenware high reliefs depicting the way of the cross, the estate is a testament to the Rossini family's commitment to both tradition and excellence.

A rare beast, indeed. An IGT, only 400 bottles were made, many already sold, this was a true one-off. It has never been made again. Why? It was a tribute to Bruno Rossini, the founder of the estate. The label is by Antonio Manzi, a famous Italian artist. The wine is 100% Merlot, from their oldest vineyard. For those seeking a Masseto equivalent, you need to take a look at this. Or simply if you like a cracking wine. The immediate impression is of a wine that is still so young. It is bright and fresh, with depth, spices, coffee grinds and blueberry notes. Bold cherries and truffles. There is real energy here, with a supple texture and immaculate balance. Fine but abundant tannins, the wine has serious length. Stunning, this is a great Merlot, with an incredibly promising future.
