History

The estate is located within the heart of the Chianti country, in Gaiole, and the homestead dates back to 1056.
Monterotondo was established in 1959 by the grandfather of the present owner, Saverio Basagni, after which it became a hobby for Saverio’s father. Since 1994 Saverio and his wife Fabiana manage the property as their principal activity.
All the vineyards were replanted and now the vineyard extension is 3.9 hectares. 3 hectares are planted with Sangiovese and 0.5 hectares are planted with Canaiolo, Malvasia Nera and olorino (these 3.5 hectares are all within the Chianti Classico appellation). An extension of 0.4 hectares is planted with white grape varieties, Malvasia del Chianti, Malvasia di Candia Aromatica and Trebbiano Toscano.
The cellar has been completely renovated over the years and it is equipped with stainless steel vats and a bottling plant. The wines rest for a period of 12 months in oak casks of a capacity of 7.5 and 10 Hectolitres.
The philosophy of the estate is to make excellent wine without the use of chemicals, in fact Monterotondo is  certified organic since 2003.
