In Panizzi we practice organic and sustainable farming
Our production protocols are all based on respect for the consumer and the environment.
We use no chemical fertilizers, herbicides or harmful pesticides.
We make use of green manure and residual bio masses from harvest
Further fertilizations are made with exclusively properly matured animal manure.
Extreme importance is given to the age of the vines. Letting them grow according to their natural rhytms, they reach much more advanced ages, spreading roots in depth.
Stewardship of human resources is also of prime importance; we adopt hands-on vine tending and have very limited use of mechanical means.
Starting with 2020 vintage all our vineyards and olive oil are 100% organically certified.
Testing, experimenting, the continuous investment of great resources and the improvement of the production model over the years have defined new and high-quality standards, with major attention for each vineyard and individual plot, enhancing its potential.
Panizzi Winery encompasses 4 vineyards in the San Gimignano production area (Santa Margherita, Larniano, Montagnana and Lazzaretto), each featuring its own distinctive soil, a range of elevations and exposuree, and 1 vineyard (Pian dei Cerri Seggiano) on the slopes of Mount Amiata.
At the core of Panizzi production is Vernaccia di San Gimignano, to which an equally important attention is given to sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and pinot nero. We are testing out on the slopes of Mount Amiata traminer, semillon and sauvignon blanc.
From these rich and diverse vineyards, all together summing 60 ha, Panizzi produces a small portfolio of exceptional estate grown wines.
