We are pleased to announce the entry of new companies into the Tenute d'Italia network: in recent months the team led by our sales office has focused on the important network expansion project to include some new, important Italian territories - and their great wines - to satisfy our customers' needs even more fully.
Our attention has turned specifically to Tuscany, in particular to the denominations Chianti D.O.C.G., Chianti Classico D.O.C.G. and Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G., involving three companies:
You will already find a short presentation and links to the official websites of the companies on our site in the “Partnerships” section, where you can also discover all the other producers that make up the Tenute D’Italia network.
Over the last few days on our social networks we have had the pleasure of publishing a number of images that recount the recent journey made by our sales manager, Luca Garelli, across Europe to visit some of our most loyal customers.
One of the fundamental values on which Tenute d'Italia is based is in fact the care of the human relationships, even ahead of the commercial ones, which bind us to our customers. For this reason we considered it essential, as soon as possible, to finally make a reality of a closeness that over the last few months has only been possible virtually.
During this journey, which literally led us right across Europe, we had the pleasure of presenting in person the numerous projects launched in recent months and the new collaborations that have come to enrich Tenute d'Italia's commercial offer, toasting to a future that we hope can bring back to everyone the joy of normality.

The process started in the summer by Tenute d’Italia Società Agricola to obtain Demeter certification for its cellar has reached its conclusion.
Demeter is a private association of producers, processors and distributors of biodynamic agricultural and food products recognized in 43 states - managed by their respective national offices but coordinated by the Demeter International headquarters in Darmstadt (Germany).
To obtain Demeter certification, each producer must undergo a scrupulous inspection process that verifies compliance with the rules and methods envisaged for plant production (use of compost and preparations, prohibition of genetically modified materials, etc.) but also general guidelines for the processing of each specific product category.
With the attainment of the certification for the production plant in Linaro, the Demeter certified supply chain is perfected within our network, already inaugurated by Carlo Morini's "Polenghe" Organic Farm and now completed by Tenute d'Italia Società Agricola .
Alongside the projects focused on organic production that have already been launched - first of all the project for the gradual green conversion of the entire Canale dei Molini line - it will now be possible for Tenute d'Italia to further enrich the value of its offer to meet even more specific needs of every single market sector… but not only!
We consider every certification system - and consequently of control - imposed on our network to be an important addition to the value we offer to our customers, testifying to the commitment that every member of the Tenute d'Italia network shows on a daily basis in order to guarantee high quality standards at every stage of the production, transformation and distribution process.
Rich and extraordinarily varied, the Italian wine scene is certainly one of the most exciting horizons for any wine lover. Each region is a veritable treasure chest full of gems, in which the most ancient production traditions are intertwined with the intense passion of the producers, who are committed daily to honouring and projecting their heritage into the future.
On the theme of promoting the Italian wine heritage on the great international stage, Tenute d'Italia has for many years been proudly placed in the front row: in addition to contributing directly to the promotion of wines and the food and wine culture of Romagna, the company has progressively developed an increasingly rich national network of partners to enhance its offer.
This constant work of research and comparison has led us to discover and get to know the absolutely extraordinary companies that today we are honoured to be able to include in our network of partnerships. It is a network founded on the sharing of ideas and values, dynamic, strongly oriented to the development of commercial strategies able to fully enhance each bottle not only as a product: a genuine fruit of a tradition and of the passionate work that draws inspiration from it.
Below is the updated list of companies that make up the Tenute d’Italia sales network: the same list, complete with company presentation and link to the official website, is available on our corporate website in the "Partnerships" section.
While the last of the operations of perfecting the 2020 vintage are still underway in the Tenute d’Italia winery in Linaro (Imola), we announce the official closure of the harvesting activities in our vineyards.
Tenute d’Italia wants to extend a big thank you to all the members of its team who for almost two months have been involved in the harvesting operations, carefully selecting the grapes that - we hope - will give us one of the best vintages of our production history.
Thanks guys for your work and your commitment, essential elements for building the present and the future of our company!

We are happy and honoured to announce the entry into the Tenute d’Italia network some new companies whose range of products is enriched with wines that are the expression of two territories that are symbolic of Italian viticulture: Sicily and Veneto.
From the largest of the Italian islands - one that has always held a deep fascination for Tenute d'Italia, even inspiring them to dedicate the Stella del Sud line to it - come two of the three new companies in our network: Giasira, an organic company that extends for about 130 hectares between Noto and Modica, and Produttori Etna Nord, a network that involves three production companies that spring from the northern side of the imposing Sicilian volcano.
Deeply bound to their respective territories, these companies base their work on the enhancement of their traditions beginning with its main protagonists: the native vines. In fact, among the vineyards of Giasira triumph the Nero d'Avola, the Moscato Bianco, the Grillo, the Catarratto and, last but not least, the Nerello Mascalese, to which the Etna Nord Producers also assign a leading role in their offer, together with the Carricante.
In addition to this extraordinary primary material, a no less important factor that contributes to making the wines of Produttori Etna Nord and Giasira unique is the terroir: from the volcanic soils - ancient, deep and rich in organic substance - to the calcareous soils of Cava Paradiso, it is in fact the very land itself that nourishes and permeates all these wines, making the purest soul of the island resound in the glass.
Let's travel north now, to Veneto, in Valdobbiadene, to get to know Clara C', a company that is fully justified in claiming a leading role both in the history and in the present (and future) of Prosecco.
Clara Carpené, founder of the company, is in fact the "figlia d'arte" (daughter inheriting her father's artistry) of Antonio Carpenè Jr (1913 - 2010), the wine entrepreneur who helped create the industry and the world of Prosecco as we know them today.
Since 2004, the year in which the company that bears her name was founded, Clara Carpené has been able to combine the best of tradition with an innovative and totally feminine vision of the sparkling wine market, working side by side with the best producers in the area to obtain only the best quality.
