Panizzi

Our winery was founded in 1989 by Giovanni Panizzi who was very beginning among the most prestigious producers in the San Gimignano area. Panizzi is recognized as a leader for the modern style and iconic quality of Vernaccia di San Gimignano production. Research and experimentation in the vineyard and in the cellar are the pillars of our production philosophy. In the production of our wines we are guided, with great determination and without compromise, by two important guidelines: identity and quality. Our mission is to create terroir driven wines with extraordinary evolution skills.

Panizzi is located just outside the walls of San Gimignano; we own 60 hectares of vineyards and we are bottling exclusively grapes coming from our property. We have concluded the conversion period of all our vineyards on December 31, 2019 and 2020 will be our first vintage produced entirely from organically grown grapes.

Our range offers: a vintage Vernaccia, the Vigna Santa Margherita, (one of the few crus of the denomination) and the Riserva recognized for its exceptional quality and great potential for aging; the prizes and awards obtained by all the most important magazines in the world certify our quality approach.

In addition, Panizzi was the first producer to offer an “orange wine” 100% Vernaccia – Evoè – a wine obtained after a long maceration on the skins (6 months). Among the reds, Panizzi offers two versions of Chianti Colli Senesi, the vintage and the Vertunno, a more complex expression as with the Riserva docg.

In the red range there are also 2 very particular and unique wines: Folgore, Rosso San Gimignano Doc and Pinot Nero San Gimignano Doc. We are the first producer (and so far the only one) of Pinot Nero San Gimignano Doc.

Despite the difficulties of the moment in which we are living, fortunately, nature does not stop and we are ready and happy for our first organic harvest. We are confident that our efforts and commitment will be appreciated and hopefully supported by consumers and business partners.
