Fulvio Marcucci purchased 25 acres of woodland that formed a natural amphitheater on the southwest side of Montalcino in the 1960s, with an eye to planting vines and olive trees. Fast forward 50 years and these vineyards are in their prime, and Fulvio’s granddaughter, Gemma, is crafting the family’s Brunello wines with her father, Giancarlo. Their three vineyards were planted between 1968 and 2000. With just over seven acres of vines (surrounded by wild forest), the Marcucci family produces just a few thousand bottles each vintage.
