__ History

TRADITION  &   INNOVATION

Cerbaia is a family-run business dedicated to the production of wines from some of the best vineyards in Montalcino. His Brunello is the true expression of a unique and distinctive place.

In 1978, inspired by his passion for viticulture, the agronomist Fabio Pellegrini converted his family business in Montalcino to the cultivation of important vines. Although fully committed to a political career in international relations, he had the ability to see the potential of his land in the production of wines of great finesse and complexity.

The Cerbaia company, with its 12 hectares of land, 4.5 of which under the denomination of Brunello, is located on the hill of Montosoli, one of the most favorable terroirs for Sangiovese in Montalcino. The vineyards are located on the north side and produce a selected and limited quantity of grapes of the highest quality.

In 2014, moved by a passion for wine and a love for her native land, Elena, Fabio's daughter, abandoned a promising career in finance to devote herself to her family business.

His efforts aim to create elegant and perfectly balanced wines with the traditional style and with the same attention as his father carries on the production philosophy of making wine with minimal intervention, engaging in sustainable practices in his vineyards and products.

Today Cerbaia produces 18,000 bottles of Brunello a year, and its wines are the incredibly unique combination of a highly suited land, a traditional winemaking philosophy combined with the energy of a young winemaker. From the vineyards of the Cerbaia winery emerge wines that truly represent the authentic terroir of Montalcino.

__ Elena Pellegrini

AN INDISSOLUBLE LINK

Elena Pellegrini, born in 1982 and raised in Rome but of Montalcino origins. After obtaining the specialist degree in Governance and Internationalization, she has a career in the field of banking intermediation, management and subsequently in the field of Human Resources but her essential link with wine brings her back to Montalcino in 2014. His choice to follow and develop the family business founded in 1978 is dictated by his innate bond with the territory, his passion for agronomy and his desire to bring the Cerbaia brand to the main international markets.

LE  VINEYARDS

The company's vineyards, located in one of the best areas of the territory due to the micro-climate and the favorable characteristics of the land, produce wines of excellent structure, elegant and balanced.

THE CELLAR

The Cellar is at controlled temperature and humidification and is divided into 2 distinct areas: one for vinification with steel tanks and the other for aging, with tonneaux, barriques and 25 hl wooden barrels that we use to refine our Brunello di Montalcino.
