About
Vini Montauto, a property founded by Riccardo Lepri's grandfather some 60 years ago stretches over 200 hectares of sun drenched, soft sloping Tuscan hills. The
Mediterranean, approximately 5 air miles from the property, peaks out between clusters of Maremma Brush.

The soil is clay and stony, andmineral laden with veins of chalk and in particular areas, rich in pebbles. The vineyards are tended to by Riccardo, his family, and Federico, his right hand man.

Vines were planted with primarily Vermentino, Trebbiano and a clone of Sauvignon Blanc, selected by Riccardo’s grandfather Enos, an extraordinary man from the older times who supervised everything and guided Riccardo in the farming activities for more than 10 years until 2011 when he passed away at 90 years old.
