The Cellar of Villa il Pozzo is adjacent to the villa, camouflaged among olive trees, cypresses and sea pines, which frame a spectacular view towards the hills of San Gimignano.
Built in the 70’s, in the style of a typical Italian winery, the value of tradition is combined with innovation to guarantee quality.
Every step is entrusted to the wise care of Duccio Gori. He is the youngest of seven grandchildren but a true master in the vinification of our precious Chianti Docg and IGT wines under the careful direction of oenologist Fabrizio Moltard and agronomist Elio Galardi.
The precious bunches enter the cellar equipped for a production of the highest level and follow the winemaking processes in steel vats, perfect from a sanitary and thermal point of view, which allow a sealed environment evolution, without contact with oxygen, and thus keeping all the freshness, harmony and natural balance intact.
Afterwards, but only for some structured and tannic IGT red wines, a long aging in French oak barriques is carried out in order to be enjoyed to their full potential.

Starting from the villa, which dominates the valley from its 250 meters of altitude, the estate descends and develops southeast and southwest in soft hills up to about 150 meters of altitude. The soil is partly sandstone and partly loamy-clayey, with a rich presence of beautiful fossil shells. […]
