“Labor omnia vincit”. This is the motto
for the tenacious and dedicated owners
of the Fattoria Mantellassi located in Magliano, Tuscany.
Coming from the area around the city of Pistoia,
the Mantellassi family moved to Scansano and Magliano
in the mid 1800s. There they worked as vine pruners and grafters.
In 1960 they planted the first four hectares
of their own vineyards at Banditaccia.
Six more hectares followed, quite soon joined by twelve more.
Today the Mantellassi family manages 60 hectares of vineyards.
The Fattoria's vineyards, located among the company’s rolling hills
on volcanic calcareous soil, are planted mostly
with Sangiovese grapes. Other varieties include Alicante, Cabernet Sauvignon, Morellino, Merlot, Canaiolo Nero,
Malvasia Nera, Ciliegiolo, Vermentino
Bianco and Sauvignon Bianco.
