Belonging to Cosimo Loia since 1983, Palazzo is a reality steeped in history and traditions, located on the south-east side of Montalcino. The functional buildings of the estate, which date back to the seventeenth century, over the years have been restored to meet the needs of modern agriculture. All stages of the production chain, from the cultivation of the vine to the sale of wine, are directly supervised by the members of the family. The grapes are harvested by hand from the four hectares of vineyards, exposed to the sun from dawn to dusk and well protected from the coldest winds. With a production that is around 22 thousand bottles a year, the Loia family wants to maintain a line that favors quality at the expense of quantity. Inside an old farmhouse an area for the aging of wine has been specifically created, while a new and functional structure has been built for vinification, bottling, storage and bottle aging. The Palazzo labels regularly reach the top of excellence every year, reflecting the integrity and dedication of those who have committed themselves to achieving these results.
