Special Guest Speaker-Piero Lanza Owner and Winemaker


Piero Lanza Owner

“Piero Lanza is one of Chianti’s greatest young ambassadors. A qualified oenologist, a very competent agronomist and a brilliant winemaker, his wines have improved immeasurably over the past few vintages. Located in the heart of Chianti Classico district the estate consists of 106 acres of vineyards, olive groves and woodlands. The winery is one of the properties of a large estate which used to belong to Prince Ginori Conti, a descendant of one of Florence’s oldest families. Floriana Ginori Conti inherited the winery from her father in the 1970s and began in 1980 to produce a Chianti Classico with the Poggerino label. In 1999 she handed over the property to her two children, Piero and Benedetta Lanza, who had been managing it since 1988. Only 11 hectares are planted with vines, almost all of which are Sangiovese. Piero is a passionate agronomist, firmly of the opinion that the work he does in the vineyard reflects not only in the quality of his wines, but the individual terroir of their property, and to this end is now working completely biodynamically.

Another of our producers described him to us “Ah yes, Piero, the one who knows all his vines by name”. Planted on clay and galestro soils his wines are marked by minerality, acidity and bright fruit. Biodynamic and certified organic.
