PIOMBAIA - ROSSI CANTINI

About Us

Our Story

Who we are

The history of Piombaia arises from the union of the Rossi and Cantini families. In the first half of the twentieth century, two farmers: Mario Rossi and his wife Carolina, privately managed part of the Pecci farm, the noble and ancient family of Carolina. This is how the entrepreneurial activity began, later it was enriched thanks to the contribution of the Cantini family. Especially when a Pisan farmer Vittorio Cantini, marries Lida, Carolina and Mario’s daughter, they bought other land including the Piombaia farm.

Upon Vittorio’s untimely death, Lida’s brother Remo, who was on his way to take his vows, gave her advice and supported her running the company. The structure where the farmhouse was built today was purchased in the 1980s, at the same time as the Brunello wine boom. Later Lida and Vittorio’s son Roberto made the next leap in quality by launching the company in a modern entrepreneurial perspective, also developing in the agritourism sense with the renovation of one of the most beautiful farmhouses in the territory of Montalcino: La Crocina. Roberto, born in 1950, (in the photo above together with his mother – grandmother Lida – and her three children) despite his work in the bank, managed the family business for a long time until he leaves it in the hands of his sons Vittorio, Francesco and Cecilia and becoming the owner who, together with their mother Stefania, supervises the work carried out by their children.
