I Veroni vineyard

Founded in the middle- ages, today the farm buildings combine centuries old structures and contemporary additions. Parts of the first stone wine fermentation tank built in 1809 are still visible in the original cellar. At the start of the 20th century the family of Carlo Malesci purchased the vineyard from the Modigliani di Rufina family. ”I Veroni” is derived from the wide terraces surrounding the farm which lies in the Pontassieve Hills. The vineyards cover 15 hectares. In 1996 Lorenzo Mariani took over the management of the business and, together with Emilio Monechi,  he began the important business of  specialising in wine production I Veroni

Today, Bolgheri, is its own DOC, elevated from IGT status thanks to the Super Tuscan movement, which simply put is winemaking that incorporates international grape varieties and vinification practices that fall outside traditional Italian wine laws. Hence, wines are not allowed to be labelled as classic regions (that is, until enough producers protest and new laws are written and new DOCs formed).
