Producer Profile

Cosimo Maria Masiniq

Cosimo Maria Masini lies in the hills of San Minato, located in the province of Pisa and in the heart of Tuscany. An ancient medieval village found along the historical Via Francigena, San Miniato is famous for wine and world-renowned white truffle. In this area, viticulture has ancient origins with a history of more than 2 thousand years. Our winery extends for 40 hectares (100 acres) on a single hill cultivated with vines, olive orchards and other crops. Villa la Selva, the heart of the estate, is an ancient residence that belonged to the Buonaparte Family. It was later purchased by Marchese Cosimo Ridolfi, a famous agronomist of the time, who, during the mid 1800’s constructed the winery (which is still used today) and began to work the vineyards with innovative techniques of the time.

Where The Wines Come From


Chianti, situated in the heart of Tuscany, Italy, is renowned for its iconic wines and rolling vineyards, now increasingly embracing the principles of natural winemaking. With its picturesque landscapes and ideal Mediterranean climate, Chianti offers a perfect environment for cultivating indigenous grape varieties such as Sangiovese, Canaiolo, and Colorino. Winemakers in Chianti are dedicated to sustainable viticulture, employing organic and biodynamic farming methods to nurture the vines and preserve the health of the land. In the cellar, minimal intervention is prized, with spontaneous fermentations and aging in neutral vessels allowing the true expression of the grapes and terroir to shine through. The resulting natural wines from Chianti are a reflection of the region's rich winemaking heritage and timeless beauty, with their vibrant flavors, elegant textures, and a sense of place that captures the essence of Tuscany's storied winemaking tradition.
