A TERRITORY AND ITS ESSENCE
The company Ambrogio e Giovanni Folonari Tenute is the result of the intuition of Ambrogio Folonari and his son Giovanni. They descend from a family historically dedicated to wine business. Since late 1700s the Folonaris has operated in the vine-growing and wine- producing field and has contributed to writing the history of Italian wine. Wholly owned by members of the family, the company set the goals of developing, producing and distributing the world’s finest Italian wines and it is considered one among the most important and dynamic wine producer in Italy. At the beginning of 2000 Ambrogio e Giovanni Folonari took new and original directions and produced new high- quality wines. These innovative experiences enhanced the little-explored possibilities of many Italian and Tuscan varietals resulting in wines of excellent quality and strong character.
The philosophy behind the goals of “Ambrogio e Giovanni Folonari Tenute” is based on the ownership and management of eight famous agricultural estates, seven of which located in Tuscany. The Estates are: Nozzole Estate (Chianti Classico, IGT “Super Tuscan”, Chardonnay) – Cabreo Estate (Super Tuscan) – TorCalvano Gracciano (Nobile di Montepulciano – Rosso di Montepulciano) – La Fuga, Montalcino Estate (Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montalcino) – Spalletti (Chianti, Rosso Toscana) – Campo al Mare Estate (Bolgheri, Vermentino, Rosato) – Vigne a Porrona Estate (Montecucco, Morellino, Sirah, Maremma Rosso) – Ronco dei Folo Estate (Colli Orientali, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon, Bianco, Schioppetino). The company is involved in every step of production, from the cultivation of the grapes in its vineyards to bottling the final product. Each label bears the trademark of the estate which grew the grapes for that wine, and therefore create an unique character to that particular wine.
