  • The Podere Monastero estate is situated in Castellina in Chianti, in the heart of Tuscany.

  • The vineyards occupy an area of 8 acres, 4 of which are used for the cultivation of Pinot Nero, while the remaining 4 are cultivated with Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Merlot (50%).

  • The choice of the clones and rootstocks, was critical to the winery, which required extensive research, carried out by the most prestigious nurseries in France.

  • The challenge was to produce an excellent wine in a land famous for other grape varieties but not for this particular variety - Pinot Nero.



Established in 2000 by oenologist Alessandro Cellai, Monastero was created with the sole aim of making two great wines: La Pineta and Campanaio.

Every single operation is approached with meticulous attention, from vineyard to cellar.

  • Every single operation is approached with meticulous attention, from vineyard to cellar.

  • La Pineta (100% Pinot Nero) is created with this philosophy; each vine is tended right from pruning, initiating creation of a superb product.

  • Campanaio (50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon), is the result of meticulous attention, beginning with the choice of rootings.

  • These two wines do their utmost to fully enhance the particular characteristics of the grape varieties of origin without disguising the positive aspects of the local terroir.
