A great wine which comes not only from the soil but also from one man's dream. Vincenzo D'Isanto dreamed of making “his wine” : elegant, pleasant and with a refined bouquet. In 1977 he bought an estate in Barberino Val D' Elsa, called I BALZINI as written on the cadastral survey map. The name I balzini is given in Tuscany to indicate small terraces. Vincenzo analyzed the soil to understand which grape varieties were best capable of expressing the characteristics he was looking for. He planted a small vineyard and after some experimentation he collaborated with Giulio Gambelli and, in 1987, he produced the first vintage of I BALZINI White Label. The passion of Vincenzo involved his wife Antonella, who managed the estate for about ten years, expanding the company products with olive oil, grappa and wine jelly. Since 2017 their daughter Diana D'Isanto is the winemaker. With her, the I Balzini project is reinforced with ideas based on eco-sustainability. This, in addition to the choice of a young team, represents Diana's desire to combine the tradition excellence with the dynamism and awareness of the future of the wine markets in the world. I BALZINI are niche wines, they are elegant, smooth, pleasant to drink and perfect for aging. It's D'Isanto choice do not sell the entire production of a vintage but keeps a part of it stored in the cellar to be sold over time. For this reason, all vintages from 1987 to today are available also in special formats. They are the perfect wines for winelovers and collectors. These wines are able tell the history of the terroir which is particularly loved and well maintained due to choices regarding environmental sustainability. These wines are produced thanks to a loyalty focused on a careful selection of the grapes, which are worked upon with care and dedication.
