Is being a tourist so exhausting that you’ll need a vacation after your vacation?
Slow down on one of your days in Tuscany and join us at our little farm, learning about what we do and getting a taste of real country life.
Madonna Bella farm is so close to the city center (only one mile from Siena) it's easy to reach by taxi or if you have a car, it’s a five minute drive.
Take a break from your busy schedule: sometimes you need one to really absorb the art and history that you have just experienced in the city.

It is aged for two years in oak barrels and one in the bottle. The grapes are harvested in September and fermented in their skins for 15 days in stainless steel vats. The wine is then aged for two years in a 10 hectoliter Slavonian oak barrel. We then bottle the wine and leave it to age yet another year in the bottle. Our Nobile di Montepulciano will remain of the highest quality for 15 years. A dry, full-bodied red wine with soft tannins, it pairs extremely well with protein-rich foods such as meats (especially game), cheeses, and legumes. The name,Vina Ati, is inspired by the fact that Sangiovese prugnolo grape berries are the oldest to have ever been found, and were discovered in our own area among Etruscan artefacts dating back to the 2nd century BC. “Vina Ati” means “the mother vine” in Etruscan.
The grapes are harvested in September and fermented in their skins for 15 days in concrete vessels at a controlled temperature. We then bottle the wine and leave it to age for at least a year in the bottle. Our Chianti will remain of the highest quality for 8 years. A fruity red wine with the hints of wild red berries found in traditional Chianti wines, it's an everyday wine that pairs perfectly with Meditterean cuisine like appetizers, pasta dishes and meats, but it is also perfect to sip on while you are preparing dinner or chatting with friends. Ours is a DOCG Chianti, which means that the grapes must be grown in accordance with a strict certification procedure in a specific region of Tuscany in order to earn the name. We named this wine MadonnaBella in honor of our land on the outskirts of the city of Siena, named by friars who worked it in the Middle Ages.
The grapes are harvested selectively at separate times, in September for the Merlot and
early October for the SanGiovese.
The juice ferments for around 20 days in stainless steel vats. The wine is then aged for two years in a French Tonneau barrel, followed by another year in an enormous barrel made of Slavonian oak. We then bottle the wine and leave it to age yet another year in the bottle. This is why finally, today, we are proud to announce that our Tesoro 2015 wine is ready to be opened! It will remain of the highest quality for the next 15 years. A dry, full-bodied oaked red wine, it pairs extremely well with aged cheese and roasted or grilled meats. Or, drink it slowly after dinner as you contemplate life. Without a doubt, this is the crown jewel of Madonna Bella, rightfully named “Tesoro” (Treasure).
We have called it “GIALLO SIENA” after the famous yellow marble from this area (pictured above). Like the marble which inspired its name, the grapes used to make this wine are unique and traditional from white vines in Chianti area in Tuscany, where the mineral structure of the soil and the Tuscan sun have remarkable in its delicate, refined flavor. The Giallo Siena grapes give our wine a great aroma, acidity and dryness!
Our new wine will be ready to ship in April 2020 and while you have yet to taste it, you can trust us when we say it’s perfect for pairing with fish and with antipasti.
Should you wish it we can give you a tour of the farm with an explanation of how we grow and process the food, or a wine-food-pairing experience sitting on our patio or on a bench among the olive trees admiring the amazing Siena skyline.
