Who we are
What are you meaning for?
A traditional but dynamic company. A fifty – year story.
Everything began in Velletri, at the gates of Rome, where the Tognazzi farm is located.
Our journey started from there, looking for a new way of wine-making while preserving our best tradition.
Our vineyards are nowadays located between Velletri, the Castelli Romani area (both in the surroundings of Rome, Lazio) and the Chianti hills (Tuscany), an iconic region for Italian red wine.
Right there, in Chianti, our story intertwines with that of Franco and Matteo Bernabei. Franco is a world-famous winemaker, nicknamed “Mr. Sangiovese ” because of his ties to Tuscany.
Despite his young age, his son Matteo is also an internationally well-known winemaker who learned the craft from his father.
La Tognazza is today run by the tireless Gian Marco Tognazzi and by Alessandro Capria Over the last few years, they have built up a nothing but exceptional team, which has turned Tognazza into a must-have wine.
