Silvio Nardi bought the estate in 1950 at Casale del Bosco; since 1985 it has been run by his youngest daughter, Emilia.
The estate’s vineyards are situated between 140 and 420 metres above sea level: some
extend north-west of Montalcino on the hills around Casale del Bosco, while others are located in the south-east at Manachiara, where the precious cru of the same name originates.
36 vineyards of an untouched and beautiful territory and they aim to express in his products the essence this beautiful Montalcino.
Owner: Nardi Family

Varietals planted: Sangiovese, Merlot, Moscato, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Colorino
Total acres: 80 hectares under vine
Soil: Generally composed of clayey substrates with sandy and muddy intercalations. On the terraces near Casale del Bosco, which are probably of fluvial and tectonic origin, there are shallow but cool bare soils over jasper. In the area of Manachiara the soils lay on top of clays and siltstone-marl with calcareous intercalations and sands rich in quartz. The lands are not very deep but are well-structured with medium inclines and weak erosion.
