HISTORY

My family's first contact with the world of viniculture was in 1961 when my father, Dino Carletti, bought 22 hectares of land in the Comune of Montepulciano.He planted the first specialty vineyards in the region.The inspiration for this investment came more from the heart than from economic motives.It was dictated by my father's desire to maintain a living contact with the place of his youth and the culture of his origins. Apart from its immediate impact on the direction of the company, this bond had a fundamental influence on my formative decisions, compelling me to take a degree in agriculture in Florence in1978.
In the years immediately following, I held a professional post in an agricultural firm in Northern Italy.Although I wasn't occupied with viticulture, it gave me an opportunity to enrich my training with valuable work experience.
At the end of 1980, due to the economic crisis and the decline in consumption, I took on the challenge of directing my own company, bringing to it a modern production philosophy based on my personal vision of agriculture. Passion for the art of making wine immediately took hold and inspired me to learn about the most advanced techniques of international viticulture and oenology.
