Conti di San Bonifacio produce three award winning Organic Red Wines and an Organic Olive Oil in Tuscany as well as a Prosecco from their home in northern Italy, in the Veneto. An ancient family of 1000 years of history has seen much of the evolution of Italian Wines and they are a family with enormous experience in Wine and Hospitality.
Massa Marittima, a beautiful medieval town and region, is the home to their Winery, Vineyard and Wine Resort Hotel producing their DOC Monetergio di Massa Marittima as well as two superb Super Tuscans, Docet and Sustinet. The Vineyard and Olive Grove is completely Organic and they are located close to the incredible Maremma coastline, famous for growing some of the most important wines in Italy.
Terroir here is rich in clay but plentiful stones and immediate drainage into the river next to the vineyard strain the vines to produce grapes of the highest quality. Planting back in 2002, using a very careful selection of clones of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignan, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Petit Verdot, was done in high density. Vines are green harvested and finally hand picked early September and then reselected on the table to ensure that what you drink from Conti di San Bonifacio is always of the highest quality.
Monteregio di Massa Marittima
DOC. 85% Sangiovese, 10% Syrah and 5% Cabernet Franc. This superb example of the native grape of Tuscany is a favourite of the Contessa Sarah. Sangiovese can be a very challenging wine to harness but here at Conti di San Bonifacio, the terroir and the careful discipline applied in the Cantina has paid off. A wine the colour of ruby garnet just like those Brunellos! It is no myth that when Montalcino bought grapes from other parts of Tuscany they cornered the entire production of the Monteregio region. Now though it is an established DOC and in the glass this is a wine which gives back way more than you pay.
Docet IGT. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon 50% Cabernet Franc
Our Bordelaise style wine has great structure and finesse winning medal after medal at the IWC and Decanter World Wine Awards. The latest is the GUIDA ORO VERONELLI which awarded us Tre Stelle and +93/100. This puts Docet into the top 500 wines in Italy out of 17,000 entrants.
Sustinet IGT. 100% Syrah
This Super Tuscan is a megawatt example of what can be achieved in a small but well disciplined vineyard in the Maremma. Multi gold medal winner and 94+ pointer it is seamless from beginning to end. Voted second best Syrah and third best Organic wine in the World by Decanter, this is a world class wine. Get it while you can.
Prosecco DOC Treviso Extra Dry
Our Conti di San Bonifacio Prosecco has been produced in Valdobbiadene in the province of Treviso. The parcel of land planted with Prosecco Glera grapes belonging to the family. The facilities of a Cantina close by were used to ferment our own grapes and bottle our own Prosecco. This is our first vintage. Our aim was to produce a benchmark Prosecco of high quality as we have done with our family of Red Wines. So we have worked in the vineyard to reduce quantity, select grapes on a deeper level and take the wine to a higher standard.
