The name PIETRANERA (black stone) derives from the volcanic soil present in this area. The estate is located in the southern area of Montalcino, famous for giving birth to a Sangiovese with deep colors, great complexity and structure.
The 8 hectares are under the supervision of the expert touch of Riccardo Cottarella, one of the best oenologists of Italy. The Peluso Centolani family owns two major wine estates in Montalcino: Tenuta Friggiali, with cellars and offices, and Tenuta Pietranera, whose vineyards, olive groves, arable land and woods cover approximately 200 hectares.
