Pietro Beconcini Agricola

San Miniato, Tuscany

Leonardo Beconcini and Eva Bellagamba own and run this estate just outside the incredibly pretty village of San Miniato, not far from Pisa. They grow mainly Sangiovese for their Chianti Antiche Vie, a deliciously soft, smooth, round and fruity red wine, and other Tuscan reds. They also, uniquely in Tuscany, grow Tempranillo grapes, better known as the classic grape of Rioja and Ribeira del Duero in Spain. The Tempranillo vines are believed to have been brought to their part of Tuscany by pilgrims on the route from northern Spain to Rome in the middle ages. The winery is organic, and the focus is on producing small quantities of rich, concentrated red wines.
