After three generations of winemaking, the Lunelli family decided to further its passion for producing outstanding wines by adding to the success obtained by its Ferrari Trentodoc. The range was extended to three wineries in three different regions of Italy: Tenuta Margon in Trentino, Tenuta Podernovo in Tuscany and Tenuta Castelbuono in Umbria.
The project began in the 1980s, with the creation of still wines in Trentino that capitalized the experience gained through years of growing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in high hillside vineyards. From the start of the new millennium, the family began paying particular attention to regions with a consolidated reputation for the production of fine red wines. Seduced by the charm of the hills of the Costa Toscana, and in particular by the vineyard filled hill on which the historic Casale Podernovo lies. They began their adventure in Tuscany by acquiring forty hectares in the village of Terricciola.
In 2001 it was the ancient and mystical region of Umbria and the powerful and ageworthy Sagrantino wine that captured their attention.The Lunelli family purchased land in Bevagna and Montefalco, partly planted and later built the cellar-sculpture of Carapace. After several decades of commitment, this large-scale project encapsulating agriculture and life, high-quality, and beauty became the Tenute Lunelli brand. A seal chosen to express the typical characteristics of areas that are especially suited for making fine wines: products that interpret their particular terroirs in a profound way and whose distinguishing trait is their elegance and longevity.
