Producer

Podere Le Bèrne / Fam. Natalini

Winemaker Andrea Natalini and his nephew Frederico, the budding oenologist at the winery, are the pillars of the family business. But at Le Bèrne, everyone pitches in to make great wines! Wines of excellent quality at fair prices, authentic, warm-hearted, and inviting, just like their producers. Welcome to Italy!

The winery Le Bèrne is located in south Tuscany, in the province of Siena, amidst the beautiful landscape of Montepulciano. The famous Vino Nobile has been produced here since the 14th century. In the 1960s, Egisto Natalini and his son Giuliano decided to vinify the grapes from their vineyards themselves. The winery was founded and it brought new splendour to the Tuscan winemaking tradition. In 1995, Giuliano's son, Andrea, a graduate agricultural engineer, joined the business. Andrea manages all the viticultural operations, supported by the renowned oenologist Paolo Vagaggini.

Grape variety

Colorino

Brings color to the game

This red variety's name is its manifesto. The berries are primarily used to color wines, as the dark juice from the fleshy Colorino grape gives blends a beautiful, deep color, even in small quantities. From Chianti to Vino Nobile de Montepulciano, many different wines benefit from Colorino, which is cultivated in all corners of Tuscany, as well as Umbria. Colorino even grows wild in the forests, and the vine's leaves sometimes turn completely red.

Varietal wines from this grape are hard to find; winemakers appreciate it mostly for its color intensity.

Colorino

Prugnolo gentile

Epitome of Tuscany

Chianti classico, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino nobile di Montepulciano: the Sangiovese is in each of the classic red wines from Tuscany. For a long time, it was assumed that its birthplace was here. After all, it appeared under various synonyms in Tuscan documents dating from 1600. But in 2004, researchers unveiled that one of its parents originated in Calabria in southern Italy. Today, it is the most planted variety in Italy. In addition to Tuscany, it fares well in Emilia-Romagna, Marche or Umbria. It is an exceptionally lovable wine: its aromas of cherry and plum, violets and spices are complemented by fresh acidity and a juicy texture. It wins people around both as cheerful, drinkable wines with pizza and pasta and as barrel-aged top class wines. Carried by Italian immigrants, it found its way to California and Argentina. However, it does not have the same reputation there.

Italy – Where wine is a way of life

The Italian wine regions are extremely diverse, and this is made clear in their wines. Established varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon can be found on just 15 percent of the total vine growing area. The remaining 85 percent is reserved for autochthonous, indigenous varieties. More than 2,000 different grape varieties are grown under diverse conditions and pressed with various techniques into wines that reach the top tier of the international wine market.
