The hill-top hamlet of Ghizzano lies in the Pisan hills, around 40km from the Tuscan coast. The Venerosi Pescolini family settled here in the late 14th Century and the estate now encompasses around 350ha with 20ha of vines. Vineyards sit within this gentle landscape at 200m above sea level and the zone is blessed with a mild climate thanks to its maritime influence. Wine has been bottled since 1985, production has been organic certified from 2008 and is moving in a biodynamic direction with concrete eggs a recent addition to the winery.

The wines are now made by Ginevra Venerosi Pescolini and she continues to gain almost annual Tre Bicchieri awards. As a part of her philosophy of ensuring the wines represent their location Ginevra has also been reducing the amount of new oak in her SuperTuscan creations. Natural yeasts, pressing under foot and a move to using larger format oak are also integral to the style of the wines.
