In 2000, Annibale
and Elena decided to add a new dimension to their property and planted
two hectares of vineyard on their hill, at an altitude of 450 metres,
in a place with a perfect microclimate and soil for growing Sangiovese
grapes, and producing Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino.
All the work on the vineyard including the harvesting is done by hand
jointly by the whole family. Giuditta, the graphic artist and Carlotta,
the illustrator, worked together on creating the logo and the graphics
for the estate and the wines. The label and the particular packaging of
the Nostra Vita Brunello are the fruit of the family's collective creativity.
The desire to convey the fact that every single bottle is special and
has its own particular story, led Annibale, Elena, Giuditta, Valentina
and Carlotta to create a unique appearance for each bottle.
Every single label is painted by hand: involving a personal rendering
of the Nostra Vita logo for each bottle. Nothing at Nostra Vita is a result
Every passage from the vineyard to the bottle is personally and lovingly
taken care of.
The first harvest took place in 2004 and gave birth to the Rosso di Montalcino.The
first Brunello di Montalcino was released in 2011
