The Agostina Pieri winery is located in Località Piancornello, in the hamlet of Castelnuovo dell’Abate. It was founded in 1991 by Agostina Pieri and her two sons, Francesco and Giacopo Monaci. Agostina was able to create her estate when her winemaking father, Alessandro Pieri, divided his estate among his three children. Consulting oenologist Fabrizio Moltard was hired in 2002 to further elevate the quality of the wines. Today the small family run winery produces wines designated as Rosso di Montalcino, Brunello di Montalcino, and Sant’Antimo. A unique trait of Agostina Pieri is the focus on producing high quality Rosso di Montalcino. Considered second rate by many wineries, Agostina takes great pride in her Rosso. It is in fact the only Rosso di Montalcino to be awarded Tre Bicchieri by Gambero Rosso.
