The Cordella winery was founded in 1998 by Maddalena Cordella on the southern side of Montalcino, although production only began in 2006, when the founder and her father decided to start making wine independently from their own grapes.
Four years later, the modern winery was established, which is now used to produce the prestigious Brunello Cordella, combining the most modern winemaking techniques respecting the surrounding environment.
The vineyards extend for over nine hectares to the south of the Ilcinese territory and are divided into seven parcels, distinguished by the composition of the subsoil and microclimate: Verdona in Triboli, Verdona in Grosseto, Verdona in Meleto, Violetta, Solatia, Grigiona and Chiesina.
The vine variety cultivated is Sangiovese Grosso, which is used to produce Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Monalcino.
Harvesting is carried out by hand and each phase of cultivation and processing of the grapes, in the vineyard or in the cellar, is carefully monitored through daily analyses, careful selection of the raw material and precise agronomic techniques, such as targeted pruning, pruning, suckering, green pruning and thinning out.
The grapes are left to macerate in steel vats, aged at controlled temperatures in Slavonian and Allier barrels and toasted to ensure the smoothness that characterises the wines of Cantina Cordella.
Among the excellent wines produced there is Brunello di Montalcino (vintage or “Riserva” version).
